Scuttlebutt Photos: J/24, 23, 22, 21...J/0

(May 23, 2005) On the last day of the 2005 J/24 U.S. National Championship regatta (Sunday, May 22), a 37-knot puff tossed the boats around like toothpicks. About six boats were knocked on their sides by the gust, two fully capsized, and one of those two, the Magic Hat of Snohomish, WA, turned all the way over and sank. None of the crew of the Magic Hat were injured, and rescue boats were on the scene before Magic Hat went down. Images below of Magic Hat provided by Scott Wirs/Rhumbline Photography.
