Things were a lot faster, tighter and closer than the vid shows, both were manuevering and looking for an out.
Not a small zodiac, it was very loud.

Pretty obvious that is not somewhere a non race boat should have been. I'm just glad nobody got hurt or killed. That could've been way worse. The focus and control that Nathan and team showed was incredible. Tamed the adrenaline and made it work for them.

If a man is to be obsessed by something.... I suppose a boat is as good as anything... perhaps a bit better than most.

Agreed. When I first saw the crossbar hit the console, I thought, they're lucky to be alive...

Oh no!!! It's happened! The reasoning behind the inboard foils and that might not have been enough...ouch. Reports are coming in but it looks like Cammas has at least partially severed his foot when he got hit by the rudder of their training boat, a GC32. eek

How do you 'hit the rudder blade' with your foot while sailing? Did he fall overboard and get run over?

My kid did that once on my Hobie 18 on a fast reach, missed his trap hook and fell off. The rudder blade hit is thigh so hard I was sure it was broken, but it wasn't, just left a hell of a bruise (on his thigh, not the rudder!).

His mother was not impressed to say the least!

Reports state"...open fracture at the bottom of the right tibia."

OMG! I've broken a lot of bones but to be in the water and mutilated like that...OMG, unimaginable.

Major, major sympathies go out to him.

It happened on a GC32, btw.

kind of like getting hit with a propeller I would imagine... Not fun to say the least and then someone has to get him out of the water quickly before the "fun" starts (que Jaws music).

But I figure the chase boats were probably on him before he even had to signal for them...

carnage seems to encourage participation in skateboarding and BMX type bikes... do a Youtube search on all the skateboarders losing their nutz on railings...

I thought it was a photoshop at first because of the weird way the main looked. But then I realized there was another FCS20 behind the airborne one.

I realize this post was from ~ 2 months ago;
and I realize that even in the Article linked,
they misspelled the terms of the bones in the leg.

It's: Tibia, and Fibula; not tibia, fibia- a common mispronunciation, and misspelling.

What a way to break your leg!
I'm glad he's recovering well.

New news cycle this morning is claiming that Oracle was cheating in their win over NZ in the last cup because they were "pumping" the main in and out effectively flapping it and making the boat go faster.

Does anyone in their RIGHT mind think that A) you could physically flap this gigantic wing fast enough, with human power, to improve the boat speed, and B) that you could do it and take advantage of it at 40 knots? That's ridiculous! Imagine if you tried to flap your Formula 18 sail while moving at full speed. That won't do anything but slow you down and we're barely capable of going over 15.

Pumping the main? Remember when NZ nearly capsized in San Francisco? With multiple guys grinding hydraulic pumps they did not have enough pressure to complete even a single tack! How could it ever be possible to pump that giant rigid wing?

Pumping is big in Lasers (forbidden) and RSX (allowed). This is probably some NZ Laser sailor with a chip on both shoulders about Oracle winning AC34.
