Double lightning strikes will do that. Sympathies to Dennis and crew on the terrible loss of a fine yacht and hats off to the selfless group of SYC members who jumped aboard to fight the fire, initially to try and save Schuss and later to prevent it spreading to nearby boats until the fire brigade arrived. I would hate to think what might have ensued if this had happened on any other night but a twilight Thursday when there were so many people around to notice the smoke billowing out of the boat about 20 minutes after the lightning strikes.I heard that Schuss got a bit fried by lighting in the SYC yard yesterday.
