Please don't take the race continuing after the crash as any sign of lack of concern or disrespect. Racers are on the course with full confidence that the safety crews have their back....will be there quick....with a good result. If the "crash site" doesn't interfere with a clean line for the other boats, then the race goes on. The racers know this. The chopper pilots are instructed to hover in a manner that warns oncoming racers that there has been an incident. Many, many, many times, horrific accidents have ended with better results......just not so today. Sad...

Very sad news. This thread seems heavily censored though.

Down To The Sea In Ships
Charles W. Mitchell

I have gone down to the sea
I have worked the ships
I have seen the glory of the Lord
I have quenched my lips.

I have lived the life of a Mariner
The world can be a united neighborhood
I have defied the will of Lucifer
Working the ships in an adventuresome good.

I have been to many mountains
I have been through the valley of the shadow of death
I have sailed the seven seas
The lifeline of ships is a manifestation of
"Open Sesame" and God's breath.

I have gone down to the sea
I did see the sky
The Lord is my Captain
The Lord does glorify.

As ships that pass in the night
I have met the twain
I did go down to the sea
I would do it yet again.
Put your best foot forward!
