Interestingly, the article suggests the 2 casualties went overboard first, before the RIB hit the yacht.

Hmmm, even more possibilities for speculation.

Thank goodness there were no serious injuries

"Both vessels are quite badly damaged and we're putting out navigation warnings for that fact that this yacht has sunk at its mooring with the rigid inflatable boat in the side of it."
