PORTHOLE

Cruise Weekly - - News -

OVER the past five months, Cruise Weekly’s porthole col­umn has been track­ing a num­ber of flotil­las in hon­our of Amer­i­can Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump (CW 05 May, CW 18 Aug).

Over the weekend, the most re­cent of th­ese ‘Trump­til­las’ has turned bad, with an­other boat pa­rade ded­i­cated to POTUS on Lake Travis in Texas see­ing a num­ber of par­tic­i­pat­ing ves­sels sink.

Spec­u­la­tion fig­ures the large num­ber of ships mov­ing within close prox­im­ity of each other caused choppy con­di­tions, which saw some boats take on wa­ter and oth­ers sink en­tirely.

For­tu­nately, no­body died, and all 2,500 in at­ten­dance en­joyed the flag-adorned parachutis­ts jump­ing out of a he­li­copter.
