Samoa Tsunami


Here are pictures of the tsunami in Samoa. That's a Westsail in #12...



Great Pictures!
I'm in Graciosa Bay in the Santa Cruz group of the Solomons. I did not hear of the tsunami untill it was an hour away from us. Fortunutly the effect here was nil. I am glad you made it safe. One never knows, wrong place wrong time.


the blogger is in a westsail 39. Singlehanding at 65

interesting fellow.



What a story! A first hand account of a small boat Anchored Near Shore in a real tsunami, surviving to tell the story. I never heard of another one, though there must be some. Sounds like one for the most famous Westsail boat list, if it really is a Westsail.
Still, just incredible.
