Collision!

A fishing boat (not fishing at the time) refuses to give way as the colregs require, a square-rigger doesn’t expect to have to give way – and can’t until it is too late. Don’t do this at home folks…

Regular reader, commenter and contributor Paul Mullings has kindly sent over these photographs of the Mahurangi Classic Yacht Regatta ‘to bring some joy to you wintery world’. Mahurangi’s near Auckland, New Zealand.

Thanks for the lovely shots Paul!

PS – Reader Andrew White has alerted me to a sad accident associated with the regatta in which the Arch Logan designed Gypsy collided with another boat and sank quickly, injuring one of the two crew on board.
