A Transportation Safety Board of Canada report on the capsizing of the Nova Scotia-based training vessel "Concordia" off Brazil in February, 2010, found the crew was not properly trained in how to handle certain types of rough weather. Lead investigator Paulo Ekkebus (ECK'-you-bus) said once the Concordia heeled too far, there was nothing that could be done to save the ship. (The vessel was carrying 64 students and staff from a sailing school in Lunenburg about 550 kilometers southeast of Rio de Janeiro. All of them were rescued.)
