OOF! Massive squall hits the Bol d'Or mirabaud race.

A massive squall rolled through the Bol d'Or mirabaud race on Lake Geneva. This is a long distance race featuring a wide assortment of multihulls and keelboats. Luckily no fatalities in the race though a tourist died on a sightseeing boat.

Facebook has a short clip.

A view from the mast-base-cam of one of the competitors.

Ditto on that. Interesting that it seems only the foredeck crew had his inflatable life vest pumped up.
