    Default Yacht lost on Bramble Bank

    Got a text last night about a spanking new Maxi 1100 stuck on the Bramble in the F6/7 yesterday and was lost. This true????? Anyone out there?

    Heard last night that there had been a fatality in the Solent but not know if connected with this incident. Nothing on the local news either.

    Unhappy

    There is a QHM Nav warn about an 11m yacht capsized off Lee on the Solent and then cancelled as recovered to Portsmouth but can`t find any details, is this the same event? Stayed ashore as too windy to come off our mooring and get back on single handed

    This is from QHM and is in the vicinity - boat has been recovered back to Portsmouth now.

    1. AN ELEVEN METRE YACHT, CAPSIZED AND AGROUND IN POSN.50.47.48N 001.12.009W.
    2. MARINERS NAVIGATING IN THIS VICINITY SHOULD DO SO WITH CAUTION.


    Too slow.

    We heard some of the radio traffic. The mayday was closed with the announcement that all 5 people had been recovered from a yacht capsized on Bramble Bank. The may have been more that I missed as I was a bit busy broaching a 39 footer at the time!

    We'd left Yarmouth that morning to have a look before deciding if Cherbourg was a good idea. We decided it wasn't, so had a roller-coaster ride round the Island in 25-35 knots - great fun but hard work!

    Never believe anything until it has been officially denied.

    They pumped her out this morning then lifted her. Looked like a very nice yacht too.

    well, the anti-fouling they used above the waterline certainly seems to work....


    The MCA report will be interesting.
    I think, therefore I am. I am, therefore I sail.

    Seems to be an extreme version of a shallow draft version.

    Must have been a scary experience that I never hope to witness.
    My sympathy goes to the skipper and crew.

    Which waterline - before or after?
