    So, two months after the tragedy, do we finally know what happened to the boat, why did it happen, and how did Andrew Simpson die?

    No, we don't know. Peyrons comments in the 34th AC thread are as close as we have to an answer.

    There was an old politician here in Italy, Giulio Andreotti, a real shark in the sea of politics, who once said:
    "Ill-thinking is a sin, but will often bring you spot-on".

    So, for some inexplicable reason I have an impression that we are not getting this info because the truth would put the whole current AC format in peril...

    Conspiracy theories fit right in with the history of the AC-I guess......
