This time of year I’d have thought at least a wet suit...

Jambo has done a much better job of getting to the facts but here is the “dramatic version” https://stv.tv/news/west-central/140...boat-capsized/

That report is absolute rubbish my daughter was in one of the boats and they had the situation under control untill the lifeboat came and took over.( doing 1500quid worth of damage to the boat in the process) dinghys often capsize but crews right them and sail on which they were doing they were wearing appropriate gear expecting to be in the water at some point
In this instance they would have been better off if the lifeboat had not attended

It was also originally 1 male and one female in each boat but my daughter's crew (who were both lighter than the other boat) swapped with the crew of the other boat to help right the boat and untangle sails they were on the verge of being able to sail back to the club unaided when the lifeboat arrived and took over

Was it really a F8? What sort of boat?
Presumably there was no club rescue boat around?

Nobody is required to accept assistance from the RNLI. Seems odd that the Cumbrae boat took one person ashore if all was OK, but also odd that the RNLI were worrying about recovering the boat if all was not OK.

But I doubt anyone will be surprised that the news source has perhaps misrepresented the reality. #fakenews !

No way was it a f8 it wasn't daft kids out sailing it was very experienced people. Both boats were RS200 they were practicing heavy weather sailing
The cumbrae rib was first on scene and stood by while they sorted sails in the water they were just about to right the boat having dropped the main and freed the tangled jib to sail in with the jib when the lb arrived they both got into the lifeboat but my daughter was cold having been in the water longest so they said take her back to the club in the cumbrae rib while we recover the boat
The other girl asked them to drop the jib and one of the lifeboat crew told the Cox to slow down as he was giving the boat a hard time but they carried on bending the mast and tearing the jib sail
They had sailed upwind and were drifting back towards the club
I'd volunteered to take a boat out for safety cover but they were happy the two boats could look after each other
The whole thing blown out of proportion
