Just seen this -
"A yachtsman has died and another is in hospital after a boat they were rowing in to reach a yacht moored in Cardiff Bay capsized."
Remember Cardiff bay has a barrage so is quite sheltered - seems to me yet again deaths seem to occur when you think you are safe - people take far more care when faced with a force 8.
Wonder if they had lifejackets?
I nearly came a cropper myself today - just walking along a pontoon to look at a mates boat - of course no lifejacket - I didn't even get into the boat and yet if I had tripped and hit my head it could well have been "curtains".
