There are just two points separating these two and plenty of other boats in the fleet capable of stealing the glory. Wednesday's strong wind resulted in a few problems aboardShmokin’ Joe, one of the new J/111s, with one of the two co-owner doctors – Duncan McDonald – suffering an injury as a result of a heroic manoeuvre. According to Dr McDonald he had to save two holes discovered in the mainsail from getting worse. "We were sailing downwind in pretty fresh conditions and discovered these two holes in the main. Naturally I didn’t want the whole mainsail to explode when we gybed so I made every effort in the world to stop the mainsail hitting the spreaders. While doing that my leg got taken away by the traveller block that whipped across the boat." McDonald’s leg was in a poor state when he arrived back on shore, with a cuts and grazes to the knee, and swollen ankle, but he assured us he was going to be fine. "Actually I am not so worried about the scrapes but the internal injuries in my ankle. I put a lot of ice on it and rested it when we got in so I am hoping it will be okay to continue racing. Although I have to say it is slightly worrying. It is not broken it is just going to be a soft tissue injury. Phil Thomas my co-owner has had a look and we’ve come to the conclusion it’s just a sprain, so we just need to strap it up, take lots of pain killers." The good news, in this bizarre situation is, McDonald managed to save the main. "If I hadn’t, and the holes had increased it probably would have shredded and we wouldn’t have finished the race." Chatting about this new class, which seems to have turned a few heads on the race course this week, McDonald concluded. "We’ve had our boat for two months and all I can say it is a great boat. In every condition we’ve raced it, it has been great fun, fast, enjoyable to sail and I think it is a fantastic class." By Sue Pelling/CWL.
