J/24 Sinks in High Winds at Nationals

High winds returned to Puget Sound near Seattle, Washington, on the last day of the J/24 U.S. National Championship regatta, including a 37-knot puff that tossed the boats around like toothpicks. About six boats were knocked on their sides by the gust, two fully capsized, and one of those two turned all the way over and sank. Link
