I grabbed my camera and took this very poor video ( one handed and aiming by guess work Doh! ). It looked like the yacht turned head into-wind at the last second...........but a bit late! I understand there was a second incident with the tanker at the same time - a Gym palace on the starboard side had a MOB?? But we could'nt see from our position, lots of radio traffic to that effect and a RIB grabbed the casualty/s. All going on!

IOW

Love the commentary

Doug what is the likely outcome, a big fine for yacht skipper? I saw a RIB do the same to the Redjet about two years ago and they were heavily fined for failing to keep a proper watch and also failed to avoid collision. Please all arealive as we all know a yacht was sunk off Bembridge with the loss of three about two years ago

Would have got away with it of not for that pesky little anchor hanging off the side ......

How you miss 124000 tones is beyond me .....

I can just imagine the call to the insurance broker on Monday morning. "This bloody big ship came out of no-where. I did what I could, but I'm afraid it was unavoidable. My name... oh yes... J. R. Hartley."

If he is a commercial skipper sailing professionally (i.e. Yachtmaster Offshore or similar) then he could easily get hauled up in front of the YM qualification panel and loose his ticket before being prosecuted by the MCA.

Assuming he is a leisure skipper then he could be prosecuted by a number of different bodies but most likely the MCA. I cant tell you what sort of penalty they would be after but I would guess a fine rather than custodial sentence.

It may be however there are circumstances we are unaware of. It may be nothing happens on the legal front.

It may be the owner is unable to recover the loss from his insurers. While not standard, it is not uncommon to exclude the rig from insurance while racing
