    Contrary to the thread title, the boat was a monohull, not a cat. Two of the crew are known to me (members of my club).

    The newspaper report said cat, and when I watched the video I thought it was mono but couldn't be sure.

    In Scotland at least 50% would be dentists. Unusual for architects not to be working 100 hours every week but the other two should have plenty of time to spare.

    I think you are over-reacting given that there were no casualties. Certainly the language you are using is unacceptable on here and the spacers are no excuse.
