VIDEO: Going with the flow

Little information was provided with this recently posted sailing gaffe, but it hardly needs much explaining.

A small wooden sailboat is navigating a busy, narrow waterway — we’re guessing it’s somewhere in Europe — that includes a pedestrian bridge spanning the flowing river at a height not nearly sufficient for the skipper’s mast to clear.

Apparently caught in the current and headed for a capsizing, the skipper feverishly works the tiller in hopes of averting disaster.

He does not.
