Capsize of Anna
On July 31, 2010, Atlantic 57 'Anna' capsized in a violent 60+ knot squall. Thankfully, the skipper and crew were soon picked up by a passing freighter and suffered only minor cuts and bruises. The links below contain a summary of the weather at the time of the capsize, several 'squall stories' from the skippers of other catamarans, and Chris' suggestions for a protocol to follow in squalls and very gusty conditions.
