After the collision it appears to be a spayed rudder.

Unfair.

It was green.

I left it to port coming home.

The channel was obstructed.

And there is another thread about the vulnerability of rudders in the water. The damn things are a hazard in or out.

Tragic. My heart goes out to the victims and their families in what must be a difficult time.

You guys can continue to bash J/105 sailors all you want, but that's no J/105.
