I really hate to see this-Shocking and Sad!

I just found out today that a friend of mine lost his Ocean Yacht on the Rocks in Grandview in Hampton Virginia. The Captain had to be hellied out, reports that I have gotten is that all the crew was safe. The accident happened around 8:30 at night close to shore, the rocks are the remains of an old lighthouse between Salt Ponds and Grandview.
I had been on this boat many times and the Captain and his lovely mate kept this boat in just fantastic shape, it truly was beautiful boat, and had spent a lot of time on her during Bay Days just last month. Thanks captain for letting us hang out on board, she just was a wonderful vessel.
Very sorry for the loss, and very glad Captain and crew are OK
Here is a link to see the light house when it was in existance.
