rare sight


We don’t seem to see much of this anymore…. This is  Alexander Schaerer’s Caol Ila R whose rig broke between the second and third spreaders. At the time, the Swiss Maxi 72, which is the defending World Champion here (previously she was Andres Soriano’s Alegre) was sailing under full main, genoa staysail and jib.
