SK2450 : Capsized catamaran

taken 16 years ago, near to Hognaston, Derbyshire, England

Capsized catamaran
Capsized catamaran
There were two catamarans sailing on Carsington Water, and both capsized. The one on the left of the picture was quickly righted, but the other, just in front of the yellow boat, took a lot longer. There was not much wind at the time, so we wondered whether it had been done deliberately as a training exercise.
