Default Late May carnage (a boat for every beach)

When I went to bed late on Tuesday (actually at 1:00 a.m. Wednesday) Kitsilano YC was showing a high gust of 48 knots WSW, with 32 knots steady.

So as might be guessed, it was pretty much carnage on the beaches today. On the last Thursday race we'd counted 30 boats anchored out. It looks like three of them moved into the creek for the windstorm and the other 27 attempted to ride it out.

Nine of them ended up on the beach, and one dragged anchor all the way to the Coast Guard base but managed to stay off the rocks (so an attrition rate of 30 percent). I counted 17 still anchored.

Of the ones that wrecked, as near as I can tell they all parted their anchor rodes: a wire rope in the case of the big ferro boat on Kits beach, a badly-eroded chain for the white sunset Beach boat, and regular rope rode (mostly three-strand) for the rest.

The pics, in order:
1) Full-keel ferro sloop "Tranquil" on Kits Beach. Appears intact, team of three guys trenching for refloat.
2) Newish cruiser "Halfmoon II" on the Kits Dog Beach. Appears mostly intact so far. ("Bomilia" in background.)
3) Apparent liveaboard "Bomilia" on the rocks at Kits Dog Beach. Holed, rudder destroyed, done for.
4) Nameless unidentified sloop on the Maritime Museum Harbour beach. Appears mostly intact, though how in got in there unscathed I have no idea.
5) Remains of a yellow-and-white painted boat on the Maritime Museum Harbour beach. I believe this may have been the Bayliner Bucaneer sailboat that was anchored out there? The colours are right, at any rate.
6) Columbia 26 on the rocks on the east side of the Maritime Museum Harbour. Completely destroyed, although there's enough deck and doghouse left to reveal the distinctive Columbia 26 profile.
7) and 7a) Coast Guard response unit at Vanier Park pumping diesel out of the Peterson 35 Senecio (Sp?), and then Senecio on the rocks at Vanier Park. Holed in the front (you can see rode spilling out of the hole at the bottom of the bow), full of water, owner was stripping off the winches when I was there. The guys in the lifejackets are coasties.
8) One very lucky Albergish-looking boat, dragged and now anchored in the middle of the traffic lanes just west of the bridge (in front of the Coast Guard station).
9) A generic-looking yellow-hulled Newportish Catalina-ish boat named "Meesha" on Sunset Beach. Seems to have mostly stayed off the rocks, and looks mostly intact.
10) and 10a) The only boat that had a chain rode, but the links were super eroded. The boat is an odd sidedeck-less design that I can't identify (like a really big Riviera Star). Using chain was a smart move, leaving it un-inspected for what was clearly many, many seasons was not so smart.

Thanks for continuing to document this.

It is tragic that people are unwilling or unable to take care of their vessels and let this be their end.
