All hell broke loose in Port Stephens (South Wales, Australia). Waves of 8 meters, winds up to 50 knots. Unfortunately, there were several boats in the sea that were returning from a local regatta.
At the boat you see in the picture, the TP52 M3 Mulberry Racing, it went wrong. But it could have been worse: all crew members were saved after a violent series of waves beached the hull. Also capsizing the Danial Thain, the rescue boat that had come from Port Stephens to help the sailors out of the bad situation: Among rescuers no deaths but two injured. Not so well for Mal Lennon, aboard Amante, also caught in the storm: the sailor was lost in the waves.
