WANTED: Yacht Captain - Must NOT have ADD

I hear there could be an opening.

PBO reader Chris Boulter witnessed this alarming piece of coming alongside in Varazze on the Italian Riviera. He wrote:

'While staying in Varazze, moored next to the Baglietto ship yard, a newly launched super yacht left the docks. I was watching with my daughter, when it promptly rammed the bridge that had opened to let it out and then ran up the dockside wall at speed.

'It had only left the dock 30 seconds earlier - one of the crew jumped off the foredeck into the harbour as it hit the harbour wall. It appears that no one was physically hurt (amazing with all sorts of people around on a sunny Saturday) only the skipper's pride and I imagine his paycheck

Ouch! Superyacht goes crash - from Practical Boat Owner magazine


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
