Photo of damage to U-10 as David Bryant runs off course
MADISON, Ind. - It was a scary ride for David Bryant in the U-10 in Heat 1C at the Madison Regatta. David Bryant in the U-10 was a half a rooster tail behind King and trying to close on turn one of the final lap when something went wrong. He couldn't make the turn and just ran straight off the course.
The U-10 crews said a propeller blade broke, ruining the shaft and breaking the gearbox. Fortunately, the boat hit the escape lane and avoided hitting anything. But the boat was done for the day.
