A while back I reported about the couple that plans to circle the globe for the next 1000 days without touching land. After planning this trip for the last 8 years, they were on Day 15 and got hit by a tanker in the wee dawn hours. The captain was on watch and checking the horizon every 15 minutes and still did not see the ship in front of him. The ship bent the bowsprit and really messed up the bow. There was doubt they could continue. Now after 7 days of repair at sea, they have a stronger bowsprit in place and they plan to continue on with their journey. Read more here.
