Media crew member Amory Ross writes in his blog, "A few minutes later came a noise like I have never, ever, heard before. You know the sound a tree falling in your back yard makes? Take that, make it twice as loud and twice as quick, and put it directly overhead. The boat violently rolled to weather and I found myself on my back, feet in the air, food bowl still in hand. It was quickly dark inside the boat and someone yelled 'RIG DOWN' through the hatchway. I looked up and out and all I could see was the main. Case closed, mast down."
