a closer look

We don’t know how this is going to look upon closer inspection, but we think there are going to be some pointed questions directed at the decisions made on board Uncontrollable Urge…

The 2013 Islands Race Organizing Authorities of San Diego Yacht Club and Newport Harbor Yacht Club have jointly requested that US Sailing, national governing body of the sport, conduct an independent review of the sailing accident that occurred during the race on Friday, March 8 off the coast of Southern California that resulted in the death of a sailor.

A panel of sailing experts will study the event and circumstances encountered by the crew of Uncontrollable Urge during the 2013 Islands Race. The panel will be responsible for researching the factors involved by reviewing safety policies and procedures, and the usage of safety equipment. The panel will determine what lessons can be learned from the accident and present recommendations for future consideration.

Crew members aboard Uncontrollable Urge encountered dangerous conditions when their vessel’s rudder failed while sailing along the shore of San Clemente Island. Rough seas drove the 32-foot sailboat into the surf line causing major damage and the crew of six were forced to abandon the vessel. When the Coast Guard arrived at the scene, five sailors were rescued but one died. More.
