Sail Fail

A little word of warning to Aussie sailors who are considering buying a yacht on the US Ebay website because it is a damn sight cheaper than buying one Down Under. Please check the friggin weather forecast (especially the winter storm warnings) before attempting to sail it back to Australia from Rhode Island . The father and son team, who had just purchased the 43ft vessel, didn’t get far…hmm, Nantucket …. before they struck trouble. Ferocious winds ripped their sails to threads and high seas made upchucking inevitable. Enter the US Coast Guards who rescued their sorry asses.

  1. Not a wise decision. Now a salvage job so did they really save any money?
