The INFAMOUS 1979 Fastnet Race Disaster

The Fastnet Race of 1979 was the Yachting race that changed the history of sailing, no one, not even the organizers, would have ever imagined what would happen shortly thereafter.

The Fastnet Race is a biennial offshore yacht race organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club of the United Kingdom with the assistance of the Royal Yacht Squadron in Cowes and the City of Cherbourg in France. The race is named after the Fastnet Rock off southern Ireland, which the race course rounds. Wikipedia
