Dodged a bullet? Look, I don’t know why you feel the need to be snarky about this, but you keep jumping to uninformed conclusions. Contrary to your post, the data you linked showed the “protected” star ferry station had sustained winds for about an hour of 80 to 90 km/hr. Also, the star ferry station and the yacht club near it we’re not protected for the worst of the storm. When the typhoon approached HK and was at its strongest the wind was coming from the north. Over the next few hours it began rotating to the NE, as typhoons do. All that time the yacht club was taking it directly on the chin. But that only explains my first photo taken at the Kellett Island clubhouse showing the upturned flying 15s jammed onto a yellow dragon (one I’ve always thought was a looker on the water). The other photos showing the dinghy devastation were taken at another RHKYC clubhouse - we have 3 of them - at Middle Island on the south side of HK. A bit of local knowledge presumably not available to you is that MIddle Island is in a natural wind tunnel due to the local topography. It can get hit hard as wind comes down a gap in the mountains above repulse bay. And it’s understandable that in the low rez photos you couldn’t see the wire anchors and tie downs that apparently failed, but you might give the consummate pros here who run our youth and sail training programs the benefit of the doubt. Anyway, sorry for calling names earlier. Under the circumstances, I expected a bit of shared compassion among sailors and just wasn’t amused about the tack you took. Anyway, what do you say we agree that HK took a dose of shit today and let it go at that?
