This week at the Etchells Nationals in Australia, Raymond Smithís St Johnís Dance lost control on a wave, broached wildly and snapped the spinnaker pole. Now totally out of control, the spinnaker pulled the yacht down sideways, it filled with water and slowly, painfully slowly, sank to the bottom, leaving just the top half of the mast visible. All three crew emerged unscathed, but the yacht spend the night on the bottom of Cockburn Sound.
