Thick fog apparently led to the death of two sailors not far from Cape Town on Monday, when skipper George Mills ran his 47′ yacht Tara onto rocks near Table Bay. Mills and Rachel Daly from Ireland died as the yacht was broken up, her injured husband reached shore and eventual rescue. Another reminder of how unforgiving some coasts can be, and how slim the margin for error is at the intersection of rock and open sea. Our condolences to Mills and Dalys’ families. Thread.
