Inches from dis­as­ter

The J/105 is cer­tainly a well-bal­anced yacht, but this is prob­a­bly not what the de­sign­ers in­tended!

“I was cycling along the Ot­ter­spool Prom­e­nade with my wife,” says pho­tog­ra­pher Steve Gray, who took the photo on 28 May. “As we reached the bridge over the Liver­pool Ma­rina lock en­trance, I saw this yacht hang­ing al­most in mid-air, bal­anced on the sill.

“There wasn’t any sign of the crew, and I can only imag­ine they missed or mis­judged the out­go­ing tide, and had to wait un­til the next in­com­ing tide.”
