The Safety Team were immediately on site to provide assistance. Pete Cumming (GBR) onboard suffered a minor injury to his bottom ribs after falling the full height of the boat, landing on the boom and was taken ashore for treatment within four minutes of the incident occurring. The rest of the crew onboard SAP Extreme Sailing Team are and the Safety Team are working to recover the boat.
