Default Boating accident in VI

Accident at boat races on Tortola this past Sunday. Not sure how it happened. Boat is pretty banged up, driver is said to be in stable condition.

Reports are that he has a broken leg but okay otherwise. Not sure what kind of boat it was.

Boat looks like a 22' Velocity. You can see the V in the paint job on the transom. Had one of these.

Glad it wasn't worse. Could have been doing something really dangerous like jumping a boat wake too close to the boat.
