Great article!!!

With compression fractures to his spine, three broken ribs, and a dislocated shoulder, Prokosh looked up to see the ship’s rig as it came down on his head. ”I got tagged by the main top yard – it came down like a dart,” Prokosh told investigators. Now he was underwater too and fighting to breathe – to live.
Its a must read.

Again it shows the changing of the boat to keep it under 'recreational' rules instead of what it should have been.
