Bad news for injuries with Rhodes and Percy out ... Cry

Just heard that Morrison is going to step in and take the helm in the Star for the remaining regatta with Simpson as crew.

I hear they did consider the 49er option but that was ruled out due to Simpsons weight.

Bit of a weird decison to do this if you ask me. This is a World Championships. The Regatta has already started and the Star is a very technical boat to sail. Whilst Morrsion is a superb sailor I don't think this is the place to try your hand in another fleet + neither Simposn or Morrison have anything to prove.  Just hope they don't damage Percy and Simpsons new Star....

Well, if you're out there with nothing better to do, why the hell not?

Don't you think that maybe (just maybe) this story is made up?

apparently it confused poor mr simpson when he shouted "HOIST" at the windward mark while standing on the transom and leaning back supported only by the runner ....
