Supercat parade lap. Lots of boats, tight turn.

Briosche in trouble, heading off the course. Notice the wakes he's crossing. Another collision was about to happen, luckily they passed without impact. I would say there was maybe one boat length seperating them.

Thank God no one was hurt..........

I wonder if the concept of putting 9,000 lb offshore cats in a situation where the first turn is as crucial as in a three lap hydroplane heat race....ought to be re-examined?
