They killed her!

They killed her and chopped her into bits and pieces! It cannot have been an easy call.
See the pictures and the story here. And so the circle of life goes on... eventually the scrap may turn into another beautiful boat. Someday...

And now onto something more uplifting: I discovered a new sailing blog... New to me at least. Love it.

53.27 knots!!

Antoine Albeau does 53.27 knots! It's a new world speed record!! Woohooo... See it on Youtube.
53.27 knots
And no helmet... Occasionally I see sailors on the local racetrack going 7 knots upwind and possible 11 knots downwind on a standard 32 feet keeler - wearing helmets. It's hard not to smile when they cross my wake, hehe.
