Kit Stenhouse, she picekd some random person up in the water in the middle of a race.

I can never start to right a boat just by getting on the board  Apart from Lasers (maybe 420s, not sure, only capsized one once, but from memory my crew righted it on his own and I'm heavier than him.)

ah right, I thought you meant you just let the boat float off. One boat had two rescue boats with it for about 20 minutes right by the dam, don't know what all the fuss was about with righting it and towing in!

Between the first and second race? Or maybe during the first and during the gap in between.. Can't remember.
