#Littlecup2015 Day1 Aethon Wing Rescue

On Monday, the first day of the #LittleCUP2015 the fleet was tested with harsh conditions, resulting in all boats requiring repairs for one thing or another. The most severely hit was Steve Clark/Michael Costello aboard AETHON. A bad gybe resulted in the loss of their wing, but they still continued sailing trying to finish the race. We were lucky enough to be close by on the gybe layline to provide assistance and pick up the pieces. No injuries were sustained during the loss of the wing and then subsequent capsize a few minutes later. #cclasscat #LittlecupGeneva Special thanks to Marco Versari and the folks from Swiss Sailing on the help with the wing retrieval.
