struck the Texas A&M Galveston Offshore Sailing Team as one
sailor died and five were rescued after the Cape Fear 38 Cynthia
Woods (pictured left prior to the start) they were sailing in the
Regata de Amigos. Apparently lost it’s keel and the boat capsized. Safety
officer Roger Stone’s body has been recovered and the Coast Guard said
divers found the body in the capsized boat 27 miles southeast of Freeport.
We’re always horrified by these types of stories and this one is tragic.
We’ll be looking to see what caused the keel failure. Here’s the fairly
dramatic Coast Guard night time rescue
video. There is a ton
of discussion in the SA forum.
