Cardiff Bay Yacht Club fined £40,000 over boat crash

A yacht club has been fined £40,000 after two motor boats crashed in Cardiff Bay, leaving a schoolgirl brain damaged.

Cardiff Crown Court heard the boats from Cardiff Bay Yacht Club were carrying 13 girls when they collided in the darkness in 2010.

The girls were thrown into the water and some, including an 11-year-old who had a severe head injury, were hurt.

The club admitted two charges of breaching the Merchant Shipping Act.
