Ferry passengers could only look on in horror as the sailing vessel had a head on collision with the ship
Footage of a dramatic yacht crash has been posted on YouTube following the incident near Syndey on Sunday afternoon.
The sound of the ferry’s horn can be heard blasting out across the harbour as it attempts to warn the yacht that they’re set for a head on collision.
Conditions in the video looked particularly turbulent, with strong gusting winds and choppy seas.
It appears that the skipper and crew have lost control of their boat after being caught out by a nasty squall.
Inexperience may have been to blame for the crash, as not long into the video, one of the crew can be seen clinging on to the windward rail for dear life, rather than trying to sort out the problem.
Ferry passengers could only look on in horror as the yacht crashed straight into the side of the vessel, but luckily it didn’t look to have caused too much damage.
