Some of these really hurt, others are just sad. In this video there's footage of a poor old hull washed ashore, leading you to wonder what its story is... Then there's a yacht crashing into a flimsy pontoon: yacht 1; pontoon 0! There's capsizes, sinkings, dismastings... and more. All the things you hope won't happen to you!



Of course all of these are relatively rare... sailing and boating is actually a relatively safe pastime... although the sea can be a wild beast, which no man can control, most of those who venture upon it have a healthy respect for its power.... here's wishing you a safe and incident-free year ahead!
