    Sounds like Vestas collided with a local fishing boat resulting in the death of one of the fisherman over night. really awful news, apparently the other 9 on board were rescued but the fishing vessel sank.

    Looks like TTOP were last again. Wouldnt like to be the skipper of Vestas - I would doubt whether any investigation by Chinese police would be open minded as opposed to politically driven.

    A good friend of mine used to have to navigate large ships through the South china seas, and says that the Chinese fishermen are the worst for no lights or any kind of way of letting people know where they are. When I got my 1st sailing boat, and told him, he said....."Oh no, not another ******* WAFI !
    People are people, regardless of race, colour or creed.
