Drama on the high seas

I MAY HAVE MIS-SPOKEN IT APPEARS SEW SEW PER CHIEF'S UPDATE SHOWS SEW SEW STILL IN THE RACE... AFTER HIS COAST GUARD RESCUE.
-
It would appear that Sew Sew aka Randy Smythe is out of the EC after capsizing off of Fort Meyers. He designed a very unique trimaran (main hull off of a class A catamaran and a bunch of custom made parts). Very high tech.
-
The Coast Guard did the rescue and if I understand the post correctly, he was unable to right his craft and his boat was still adrift upside down as another EC participant saw the boat and called it in. The key is everyone is safe. We wait for more information, tall tales and from drama on the high seas.

Wowser, glad to hear Randy is OK. Something must have broken! It appears the weather was quite nice throughout the area.
That is one high tech tri!
Here is a photo I shot just before the start.
