Nicorette Hit by Waterspout in Sydney-Hobart

(see Yahoo! Sports story for details) The video frame grab at left shows a tornado moving toward the Swedish maxi yacht Nicorette in the notoriously rough Bass Strait, between the Australian mainland and the island state of Tasmania, during the Sydney-Hobart race. The violent storm slammed into the fleet, knocking favourite Nicorette on its side and forcing 11 yachts out.
