It’s been almost 7 years since the keel disappeared off the Australian racing yacht Excalibur, and the manslaughter trial of builders Alex Cittadini and Adrian Presland is just now underway in Sydney.  The most amazing testimony thus far has been the story of crew member John Rogers, who testified that the 50,000 ton ship that rescued them literally “creamed us…we went tumble, tumble, like you were in a tumble-dryer, straight underneath the ship.”

The thread will surely contain more news as this case progresses – and we’ll keep an eye on it.
