No Longer Fired Up
There was a ridiculous accident at the J/80 Worlds today when a rib crashed USA 407 "Fired up", the 2006 World Champions, right before practice race. They crossed the boat from port to starboard and the prop got stuck in the cockpit. Steve LeMay is being checked into the hospital as a precaution. He’s seeing halos, so probably a mild concussion.
and from Jay Lutz: "I used my superhuman strength to move the boat off me, but fractured my pelvis (3 places) and slight fracture of my L2." Incredible. Thanks to Jesus Renedo for the pic – more on his site.
Oh and just for a little levity, check out this post…
