Rules of the road
:
From memory 1000m infront is a no go area, Quite often they are escorted also by a pilot boat as well and you cannot pass between ship and pilot boat. It would appear that the yacht not follow rules, I guess MAIB report will tell later

Another video here http://www.cowes.co.uk/yacht_dismast...off_Cowes.aspx
Shows a very swift response from RIBs close by

and also from memory 500m either side and astern.
Having said that if hooray henry didnt sorta get a sort of an inkling that he was gonna come off worst it would be surely pointless explaining rules of any sort to him.
Lucky lucky boy(or girl) this mistake wasnt gonna be his last As everyone else I eagerly await the MAIB report.

Looks like a matter of feet from being a really bad moment.... a few feet more and I suspect the yacht would have gone 'under' the bow...

Racing yachts are in in my opinion/experience best stayed well away from. They tend to forget common sense when racing.....

This picture (from the Telegraph) best illustrates the WAFI. The 870 foot (124,000 ton) Norwegian tanker is called Hanne Knutsen. Apparently two crew went over-board but were safely picked up.

  • Tanker had a tug on the back so was under tow (maybe also regarded as RAM)
  • yacht entered exclusion zone
  • yacht ignored guard boat
  • tanker gave yacht 5 short blasts
  • tanker was following a channel
  • yacht was crossing a channel
  • local bylaws apply
  • tanker was big and bright orange and easy to see
  • I doubt the yacht was keeping a proper look out
