Saw Glenn Gusto today and he is alright.
Said he went up a 40 foot rig and the Bosun's Chair webbing stitching failed.
He said he heard the stitching fail as he was putting on his safety strap and next thing he knew the rig was flying by.
He looked down and saw it was going to be tricky to land somewhere non hostile.
He grabbed a halyard and severely rope burned his hands.
He broke/fractured his heel.
He fractured his Tibula face in his knee, but it did not require surgery.
He is thankful to be here another day.
He is one lucky SOB.
Well, that was a bit of a bust. The warm and windless weather we have here extended way south. The race had a motoring provision, which was necessary on the race to Cedros. Except for one boat, everyone powered at least half the trip. One boat actually powered for 367 miles on a 375 mile sailing race, according to the race website.PV race starts this Saturday from MDR (Del Rey YC).
First leg is MDR - Cedros I. - 375 miles. SB boat Tranquility is sailing that leg.
PeteM: Do you really want to stand by that comment? how about a quick call to Dobb's regarding the carbon Panel to create a "shower" with dummy faucet for a rating credit, or ring Kyle about the , ahhhhh, custom, fuel cells on OD J boats. Yea right.I'll bet you find no wrong doing - kenny was always very careful in boat prep - he knew he would be under a magnifying glass
