"during the ..regatta in Athens in early August, the Austrian Tornado coach was tossed out of his boat in high waves while heading to the course area.
He did not have the kill switch cord attached to himself, so the boat kept running, directly at the mistral fleet (approx 80 boats). So with no-one driving, and the boat a threat to the Mistrals, the Greek Coast Guard simply shot at the coach boat, putting what appears to be a 20mm cannon round through the motor... the coach was rescued and is fine, but the Austrians have a used motor they would like to sell."
The above is an extract from an Irish yachting mag . So there are no guarantees about its authenticity.
Thats got to be a trophy for their clubhouse wall!!
