Bummer!

Getting that thing off the rocks is going to be interesting.

All it will take to get it off is, high tide, and an ocean going tug. Just a guess, but.... I think someone lost their job.

Instead of saying "yacht spotter" on the pics, it should say "rock spotter" because that's what they really needed.:)hand

Supposidly it was anchored at Cannes when a gale wind picked up. It drug anchor and went aground.

This one went aground at the same port a couple years back....Just not as bad. (notice it listing to port).

Damn. So it's not just people around here that don't know how to anchor!

Maybe I'm an idiot, but if I owned or was a captain of a yacht that big, I'd anchor another half mile back where there was no chance of "blowing" aground and launch the tenders to run people in from the extra half mile out.
