Out..

Today was a horrow show, on only one leg I sailed and sailed badly. Each race I capsized three time plus just tacking. Crossing the line in the second race I was white and physically sick with the pain. I started the third race but had to sail in at the windward mark. I was taken to the hospital in Hood River. I had X Rays and other tests. The doctor replicated tacking and hiking. I screamed.

I now have a splint from ankle to thigh. Fuck. I hadnt planned on it ending like this.

This post absolutely breaks my heart. You looked fabulous when I watched the practices races and first two races over the weekend. As I echo others, I hope you have a fast recovery and kick everyone's asses in next year's Worlds!
