Sailor 'drunk' when boat crashed on rocks

A 28-year-old Australian man has been charged with drunk driving for piloting his 29-foot sailboat straight into rocks off Sydney.

The skipper is the son of former Sydney Harbour pilot John Biffin and was allegedly three times over the legal limit when his boat became stranded at Balmoral Beach on Sydney's Lower North Shore, according to Nine News.

Four other passengers, two women and two men, were on board the boat at the time but they were uninjured.
