Motorboat on autopilot comes a cropper in Corsica

PBO reader Hank Jackson of Brecon sent in these pictures, taken last week while sailing between Sardinia and Corsica. He writes: ‘The motor Cruiser Afina Pallada appeared to have driven straight up the rocks. Ten degrees to starboard would have taken it nicely past the end of the island. Could it have been on auto pilot?’
