Here's a statement from our friends at Chesapeake Boating Club...

This morning (August 17) at approximately 11:30 a.m, a member of the Chesapeake Boating Club was under sail on one of the Club’s J/105s when they were struck by a 35-foot powerboat. The J/105 was struck amidships on the starboard side, with the powerboat coming to a stop on top of the sailboat. Thankfully, no one was injured.

Our members were operating the boat in a safe manner, on a day with clear visibility and 10-12 knots of breeze. The J/105 crew attempted to hail the approaching boat prior to the collision, otherwise signal, and take action to avoid the collision.
