Look! It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! Nope. It’s a Sailboat.


In the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, a sailboat made an interesting sight as a Marine Insurance Catastrophe Response Team near Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, recovered it from the grounds of Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point.

The sailboat briefly “flew” from land where the storm had placed it, over the crane and shoreline before being deposited back in the water.

BoatUS reported that many vessels were placed out of harm’s way before the storm and that catastrophic total losses, or those vessels that were totally destroyed during the storm, appear to be minimal.
