Boaters Brawling During Regatta are Height of Hoity Toity Trash
There was some real drama on the high seas.
Two men on a boat in Maryland's Choptank River got into a fight during Cambridge Yacht Club’s Annual Regatta. Yeah, they exchanged blows during a regatta, an event where you'd expect the most vicious to happen would be some trash talking about who's blazer and turtleneck cost the most or who's captain's hat is the most authentic.
(Full disclosure: it doesn't seem the boaters were involved in the regatta.)
The video was posted on Facebook after it was recorded by someone in another boat working for the race. A 21-year-old man and his brother, 19, were reportedly the ones involved in the dispute. We'd like to think they were arguing over whether or not they were too low-class to be getting in the way of a fancy regatta.
Authorities looked into the matter, but have elected not to press any charges. The boat in question suffered about $3,000 worth of damage.
Here's another video of the group. Note the NSFW, non-regatta friendly language:
