Default Race boat hits yacht

Just watching country fried home videos and shows a V-bottom during a race losing control and hits a sportfish. Looks to be a Donzi ZRC anyone familiar?

Back many years ago, one was hit during the KW race.

That was the motorcycle guys in Ft Myers. They spun and hit the deck of the southernmost checkboat. Deniis Sigalos was one of them.

I believe it was the "Ocean Spray" Scarab with Dennis Segalos and Bruce Penhall.

You are correct.....

July 96 Sarasota race, I was in my buddies Purple and Yellow 38 Scarab, we were the Pace Boat for the weekend of the races, we had the Head APBA official on the boat with us. We were on the North part of the course trying to deflate a run a way Orange Turn Buoy when the call came threw the radio about the accident, within seconds we had a knife to the buoy and shoved the remaining rements of it in the cabin and we were heading to the scene. If memory serves me correct two girls were hurt when the Transom of the Ocean Spray boat went across the Hattress bow after it had spun out in the turn. The Sport Fish was a turn boat and was anchored in the corner. If anybody wants to do a search, the accident was caught on film and was on the front page of the Sarasota newspaper the following morning.

Maybe it has happened more than once? Looks like different suspects here, but this thread needs pix.

Anyone wanna clue us in on the details of this sad story?

Jayboat, that boat looks to be around late 80's vintage.
