We reported on two dismastings last week (one of which including a full de-boating as well), and the rest of the story – or at least more of each – has popped up in video format.

First, a fairly short look at Mapfre in their training accident, with no actual footage of the bang (though we all know they have it!), but some pre and post-dismasting work getting things tidy.  The Volvo thread is the place to talk about it.

Second is way more terrifying – it’s the full, 8+minute long shot of the Martin 242 we reported getting washed under the Long Beach pier last week on its way out to beer can racing.  This video includes some rescue and even a look at the boat bashing itself to pieces.  Watch carefully, never repeat their mistakes, and head over to the thread to tell everyone how you would’ve done it.
