Had an enjoyable day on the water Saturday with my bride. Our boat is out of commission so we ran the races for our club. Then this happened.
Frustrating the amount of collisions that occur because during the start, or when crossing, or any time boats are near each other, the mainsheet is cleated.When approaching other boats, always have the main sheet uncleated in a trusted crew members hand ready to ease or dump completely.
If that was mid race, do you guys require the boats to go through the line?
That's impressive. Most of the committee boats I've worked on were not worth anywhere close to 45K in total. Plus I would think the Chris Farley physique would provide enough padding to limit damage...apparently not.
