Breaking surf is scary stuff.

Many years ago, there was a sudden storm in Cabo San Lucas, and many boats were destroyed in the breaking surf. But not all boats in the surf were destroyed. There were a few boats that that slowly dragged their anchors in the surf, but their anchors kept the bows of their yachts pointed into the surf during the storm. They slowly and relentlessly dragged toward shore and ended up on the beach without destruction of their yacht.

Those yachts that were broadside to the surf were rolled and most of them were destroyed.

So if you ever get caught in breaking surf, hope that you don't get broadside to the surf, and if your anchor drags, hope that it is a slow drag that keeps your bows directly into the seas.

The South Tower likes to eat boats. I have always stayed clear of the tower for fear of it's reputation. Then again I was always one of the first to reef on the bay.

For most of the year you can go to the south of the south tower without a problem. I've been tempted a few times but haven't done it. These pictures show why. The conditions actually look fairly benign and the swell not all that large. That is until it began to break. Then it became real nasty, real quick. Guess the moral is, never sail amongst surfers. There is a reason surfers hang out where they do.

I came across this link some time ago. I'm trying to figure out why he sailed into there and the voiceover is devoid of info. The waves dont look so large until its too late! Fortunately everyone was OK.
