NTSB stated on Monday that the sinking of the tall vessel Bounty in 2012 off North Carolina was probably caused by the thoughtless decision of the ship's captain to sail the ship into the Hurricane Sandy's path.

The 108-foot tall ship, built for the 1962 movie "Mutiny on the Bounty" sank on 29th of October, 2012 killing the ship captain, Robin Walbridge, 63-year-old and a crew member of Bounty. The shipwreck was found about 130 nautical miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, after being battered by the 30-foot seas and 161 km per hour wind gusts of the Hurricane Sandy.

Several hours after the tall ship Bounty sank, search and rescue team of the USCG rescued 14 crew members, amongst whom 3 seriously injured.

“The probable cause of the sinking of tall ship Bounty was the captain’s reckless decision to sail the vessel into the well-forecasted path of Hurricane Sandy, which subjected the aging vessel and the inexperienced crew to conditions from which the vessel could not recover,” the report concluded.

Survived crew members of the accident, testified at a Coast Guard hearing in Virginia last February. Several of them had expressed concerns to the ship captain Robin Walbridge, about sailing into the hurricane before they left the New London port, Connecticut on 25th of October, 2012.
