Running Aground


Not a good day for keeping boats off the rocks. Check out this video of a sailor who got into trouble while attempting his ambition of sailing round Britain. A combination of engine failure and fog resulting in him ending up on the Dorset rocks.

Sounds like a good example to add to the collection of Total Loss.

Evidence that even the most pro of professional sailors are not immune can be seen in the picture above of Telefonica Blue on the rocks after starting the latest leg of the Volvo. No engine failure or fog here.

While not a total loss it must be "like, totally embarrasing!"
