Stairs 1, Vice Commodore Stanton O

Vice Commodore John Stanton is pumped up for the upcoming hard water season. I mean really, really pumped up. In fact he just couldn’t resist the chance to slip and break his wrist now rather than wait for, say, an icy parking lot or something sensible like that. So instead he tripped and took a header down some stairs.

Amazingly, alcohol was not a factor in the tumble.

He did not hit his head on the concrete steps, which fortunately means the steps weren’t damaged.

Good news is he will be out of the cast and back in action by the time it gets cold out.

Feel free to contact him and offer him a lesson on how to negotiate tricky obstacles like stairs,sidewalks, and hallways….

Get well soon John!

    Looking at the laminate schedule on the cast it looks like pretty simple glass cloth- kind of heavy on the resin too- a few layers of unidirectional carbon laid at plus/minus 45 degrees would have been stronger and lighter. Also not DN legal unless it has a wood core. Can’t believe John didn’t make this all clear to the doctor!!

  3. Hey John, You could leave that thing on all winter. Just bond a cleat on the top to tie off the main sheet and you could sail all day!

    • Bill I will take that under advisement. If I ever ever get out to a big class event, I may need a waiver from the technical committee.
