Watch how fast a monohull sailboat sinks

Another monohull sailboat sinks.

The beautiful Dubols half-tonner “The Alchemist” was owned by the commodore of the Island Sailing Club of Cowes, UK.  During the “Round the Island” race, the skipper hit the wreck of the SS Varvassi, leading to a rescue operation by the RNLI. Watch as this sailboat sinks with the White Cliffs of Dover in the background.
