Disaster Strikes Draig

Having made a fantastic start to the Myth of Malham race, beat to Eddystone and fast spinnaker run past start point, at 1225 Saturday the unthinkable happened. Draig was hit by a gust during a gybe which went badly and her mast moved forward and creased below deck. As the wind eased the mast straightened and left a gaping gash across the front  of the mast from midsection to midsection. Sails were downed and a Pan Pan issued due to the fact we had a 40 mile motor to Weymouth Harbour and possibly insuffucient fuel. On the way back we witnessed rescues to other yachts by the coastguard helicopter & lifeboat. Draig now safely tucked up in Weymouth Harbour awaiting repairs - watch this space
