ok/not ok

During dinghy practice close to the port of Hellerup, North of Copenhagen a fleet of ten OK-dinghy sailors felt thunder and lightning closing in. They were heading for port when one bolt of lightning hit a dinghy. The carbon mast melted at both top and bottom.

The bolt did exit the boat through the hull and tore a large hole on its way. The sailor is unharmed.
