Sad news: Mike Lovell

Sad news about Mike Lovell. He died after his boat barrel rolled during a race yesterday. His navigator Dan Whapples is in a serious condition.

Thoughts are with the families.

I heard this earlier today . I feel for the whole racing crowd and everyone affected. Its easy to forget it can be a dangerous game if luck goes against you.

Fingers crossed the outcome doesn't get any worse.
