Another front runners out and one of the big Tris also out - hitting objects

The boats are so quick now that a collision with debris seems to be the end of their chances

This issue can only be getting worse as the boats get quicker and the debris (presumably) increases

At some point the sailors, and their sponsors, mast have to wonder about these amazing events ?
