    Questions asked about Volvo Ocean Race accident
    From: Jackson McDonald
    Date: 2014 Dec 1, 05:39 -0500

    According to this article, the reef does not appear on the screen unless the 
    chart plotter operator zooms in -- something unusual in blue water sailing.  
    
    It seems clear that the captain and navigator did not "qualify" their route as 
    free of danger zones and obstacles using, for example, paper charts.
    
    One can also ask whether the location of the reef was accurately depicted on 
    the chart -- whether electronic or paper.
