I don’t like Mondays

Sad sight on the beach here at Herne Bay this morning.
A (reportedly) 4-week-old J133 on passage from Ramsgate to London went onto the Hook Sand off Reculver in the early hours. Lifeboat attended and got a line on, but it seems the keel of the yacht came off, she started to fill and then capsized. Both crew taken off by helicopter (which very fortunately was on scene at the time) and are OK.
Boat was washed up on the beach here at half flood and lay on her side pounding on a breakwater.

More pix and full story here, thanks to SA for the find.
