Velsheda vs Ranger

Velsheda and Ranger collide

Two J-Class yachts Velsheda and Ranger today collided at Antigua Classics Week. It’s thought that this photo of the two yachts, which have just locked rigging, is the only one of the event.

An eye witness reports: “We saw Velsheda on port tack and Ranger on starboard tack and thought we would get a great photo of them crossing. Before we knew it they were on a collision course.

“Their rigging hit first, then bow, then midship, then stern. We saw four crew leap into the water from Velsheda. It was a terrifying sight and we are only glad that no one was injured. We backed off as the chase boats rushed in to rescue the crew in the water. After all the boats had moved on we collected several large pieces of Velsheda from the water.”

We hope to bring you more on this story.

    Sorgligt. Hoppas de kan snickra ihop Velsheda igen.

    Satan, Velsheda ligger mig varmt om hjärtat seglade på henne 1984 innan hon blev en super yacht. Då gick det åt 12 stycken för att hissa storen hand over hand och minsta försegel var yankee som var på 300 kvm. Har senare kollat in henne på Antigua efter dyr renoveringen hel fin men lite tappad själ. Hoppar nu tillbaka till VOR hoppas att E 3 kommer ur dimman som vinnare
