Bad luck first, good luck later.

For those of you unaware, I'll be sailing across the Pacific Ocean from Hawai'i to Vancouver in July, on an environmental crusade to film a documentary about marine debris. I thought I'd get my sailing skills up to scratch before I go, I didn't expect my first day to be quite so eventful.

 One minute into the race there was a major collision with one boat t-boning my mate Ben's lovely new boat Brigus. It was a monster bingle that resulted in the boat sinking by the time we got it back to the jetty. It was pretty gnarly.

I don't know sailing superstition but I'm hoping this means it will be all smooth sailing when I hit the North Pacific??
