    In the Extreme 40 racing today there was a collison that wiped the rudders off of Group ama-she took off for the wall at the shoreline and the crew jumped off rather than get thrown into the rocks!
    The aftermath of the two boat collison is here including on board video of the sea wall impact:

    UPDATE: the collision is shown but you have to look quick!
