Nice place to sail point Turton, shifty, gusty and flat water.

Trying to take photos while racing does have its drawbacks, can't hold the mainsheet and camera at the same time!
Note camera tangled up in the rigging [ its tied to main halyard]

Roy,

I would like to know why your sail started to disintegrate. cry crazy I assume you disconnected the boom after the event.

If that is the case then why are you about to capsize ? confused

It looks like the conditions were pretty good.

Regards,

Peter

With the boom off, one centreboard out and two people holding the boat I would guess they are trying to launch or recover the boat and the line in the water is surf (at first glance it does look like a stern wake and the boat has nose-dived but that can't be what happened).

But then why are the rudders both down (and one centreboard), and how did it end up pointing straight downwind?

I think the sail is ok. It looks torn but I think it's just wrapped around the diamond wires and the clew is flying up.

Glad you explained what the stuff around the diamonds was, Roy. Must be a tough camera!

Hi Peter,Tim,
I will try to explain the photo,
The camera was in the tramp bag so was my left hand, hit by a gust,main still cleated the boat went over, I walked down the boom still holding the camera and must have stepped on the clew fitting releasing the sail[requires a 90degree twist] The boat fully inverted and the mast stuck fast on the bottom [rocky]After several attempts, I broke the fitting holding the righting rope on the port side of the front beam. Retired from race 1 so race 2 could start, took a line from the rubber duck. Proceeded to cartwheel the boat over the bows a few times as the rubber duck was pulling us forward as well as sideways until we got it right.[that is not a criticism just a statement of fact]This is the point the photo was taken with my rescuer off the rubber duck about to get unceremoniously flicked off the starboard bow,the blue sailing jacket under the front beam is me,
Sail is a UK Halsey tape drive,
Camera is an Olympus C670 Ultra Zoom with Olympus waterproof housing,
sail and camera are doing well,
owner is feeling his age!
Cheers,
Roy.
