Ouch...hope it heals well.

Do we know what actually caused it - I know it was pretty bouncy on the return trip, but how did it happen? Any learnings?

It's frighteningly easy to hurt yourself in rough water if making any meaningful headway. I come back covered in lumps and bruises at the best of times. Mrs willk sees 'em and says "cor, I wish I'd done that to you!"

It's generally down to a combination of not being "ready" for a bad landing, having a poor hand/foot hold and being tired - bang - ouch.

Jeesh, yaaawn, he can cross the channel in a force 8 and arrive in destination on the button, but can't upload his footage. How did he navigate? Stars and moon?

C'mon andy, want to see that beast of a ribcraft unleash its 250 (?) ponies on some proper waves!! .....undertaken after proper risk assessment of course.

Now let me think, do I want to go out boating with a well equipped Robnobber, in a capable boat, with loads of safety equipment, and the knowledge of how to use it all, with no need to call on the help of outside rescue services unless it's a REAL Emergency............ or shall I go out boating with one of the many who think Lifejackets, Killcords, and backup VHF's are for wimps, tough one
