I've heard 'em called "boat-bites". They just happen, you don't realize it 'til long afterward.

Good first race! You've found a spot among "non-screamers", which is also good.

What a bunch of clutzes, fallin' all over the place slippin' on rags and lines gettin' tossed onto winches knocked on the noggon and not to forget about rope burns....

Been there done that, and I plan on doing it again... Oh yeah, thats just cruising, what a mess I'll be when I get back into racing...
