News says they were heading out and then this happened just outside the harbor. Evening winds were way too big. Looking to partake in weekly races so assume they weren't total noobies.
There is a thread about it on our sister forum here:
Even if you aren't interested in the sailing, it's fun to work out the "forum personalities" and how they translate to here!
The quick summary though seems to be: it's a racing keel boat with no engine, and unlikely to have an anchor on the bow ready for immediate deployment. They seemed to have fouled the jib sheet, it's not clear what was going on with main but they seemed to be struggling with that before the video starts. The entrance to the harbour is pretty tricky, especially with that sea and wind direction.
