Headcam footage from GPA race 29.6.13...

Probably the most sustained battle for a place I've ever had. Finally get in front and bin it!

Crash!

Yep - both okay thanks!

Diogo was straight out the water and into the first race boat on scene, and I had a line on in about a minute from the nearest guard boat. Boat was sinking but once we got it moving it stayed up!

Two more incidents on the Sunday, no injuries, guard boats there straight away, boats recovered and everyone together for a beer that night!

The season's going great over here - next race 3rd and 4th August!

All UK boats very, very welcome
