chinese gybe

Some eye opening action from the China Cup…The Beneteau 40.7, Team Tezmarin, was fortunate to keep its rig in the air as it was running downwind with spinnaker on starboard gybe when a boat from another fleet, Surfdude, was coming upwind on port tack. The rigs clipped each other, Tezmarin got dragged off course and into the wind, but Surfdude ended up snapping its rig. The 30ft Ten keelboat, Yomovo, also lost its rig after the failure of a D1 sidestay, bringing the Dutch/Chinese team’s regatta to an early conclusion.
