Interesting interaction between the CG pilot and the skipper:

 

The pilot said, “We’re requesting that you get off of your vessel so that way we can guarantee your safety on the shore.”

The man on the boat responded, “I’m comfortable in my bed. I’m going to bed. Good night.”

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Two people escaped uninjured after a sailboat crashed into an Ocean Beach jetty, before the vessel itself was crushed by high surf.

The 25-foot long boat collided into the North Channel jetty in Ocean Beach with the two individuals on board, according to San Diego Fire-Rescue Department spokeswoman Monica Muñoz.

San Diego Lifeguards used a personal water craft to reach the vessel and safely pull the two individuals after they were forced to jump from the boat. The boat was attempting to leave the jetty area when a large wave forced them to pull a U-turn.

Wind caught the sails and instead sent the vessel back into the jetty, according to witnesses at the scene.

Those two people were uninjured in the wreck though the sailboat was crushed by high surf and sunk within the channel's entrance, according to Muñoz.

Yesterday morning on my way to work I saw a lone sailboat anchored (or possibly moored) in Cowells by the Santa Cruz wharf. Knowing the forecast I hoped her owners would seek shelter in the SC Harbor. Last night's weather here in Santa Cruz was pretty intense and the southerly gale was roaring this morning when I drove West Cliff in to work. Boat was gone and hopefully not sitting on Cowells beach looking like this one. (I don't think so but I didn't stop to look at the beach.) 'Tis the season.
