Me and Mr. McKee

"There are few things more audibly arresting or morbidly engaging—or, for that matter, bloody surprising—than the spectacle of the tall carbon-fiber mast aboard a modern Open 60 raceboat self-destructing a few boatlengths away. The force is enormous, and the initial crack terrifying, yet time suddenly moves slowly; the sails seem to billow and float as the splintered spar sections fall with them to the sea. "
