 This amazing video shows the moment the Team Vestas Wind crashed their 65-foot racing yacht into a reef in the middle of the Indian Ocean during the Volvo Ocean Race.


The boat was doing about 19 knots when it struck the reef on Saturday at approximately 1510 UTC. The nine crew members stayed on board until the following morning, when they made the decision to abandon ship. The crew was eventually picked up by the local coastguard and taken to a remote islet known as Íle du Sud, where they spent three days trying to make it back to civilization

It reminds me of devastating days trading in the distant past…chaos, suddenness, the unknown, post-mortem…
