...Yachts can too.
Fortunately, it didn't happen in this situation, when we were cruising along the cliffs of Bonifacio. From our point of view, it seemed damned close though.
This massive motor yacht came upwind, with considerable speed.
They came downwind, with the foresail still up but under engine, too.
Look at the shadow that the motor yacht casts on the bow of the sailing yacht. It was definitely closer than it should have been.
A bit closer.
Being on a cruise is something wonderful. But not matter how much the crew enjoys it's time on board, as soon as the ship moves, someone has to be on the look-out, every moment.
Thanks for watching and 'til next time!
