Dont know too much. From sketchy info Im getting from the site, Aero Express, (formerly Dirty Duck 39 MTI with big power) flipped. The Crew was extracted and taken to hospital. The race was red flagged. I dont want to speculate. Lets hope for the best.

I was following the race on the webcast, but i didn't recognize the boat, and the announcer didn't mention the names. Hope these guys are ok.

Just Left The Race- All Chit Chat Going On, But The Last We Heard Aero Flipped And Pulled The Guys Out, We Saw The Patrol Bring In Someone Doing Cpr . Like I Said Though, Lots Of Talk But No Confirmed Story Yet.
