Visiting Davys' Locker

Always on the constant search for information related to racing, and the J/24. I came across this link and decided it was worth a good read. I had heard about the problems with the lazarette's (aft lockers on the topside deck), being unsecured and opening during a broach and sinking the J/24. The accounts and interviews with the owner/skipper here really make you aware of just how freak storms or wind gusts can broach a boat quickly and lead to a visit to Davy Jones Locker.

These are some action pics of the unthinkable for the boat "Quicksilver".
