Hi, there was a boating/surfing incident on the river this weekend with a windsurfer who broke his leg. I'm trying to find the guy, I have his board and sail, but have no idea how to find him. Anyone know the guy?

Don't know you personally Pete, but as someone mowed down by a boat while windsurfing, understand how you feel.
All the best.

Peter has indicated on the phone that he would prefer not to have any visitors for now. However, any alternative/addition to hospital food is welcome- just give it to a nurse in Ward G to pass on. (Anything organic is a winner).

I heard about it the other day....sorry to here you were injured Pete. I guess you could consider yourself lucky not to be injured more as getting run down by a boat is serious stuff. All the best for a quick (as can be expected) recovery. PS...you are in good hands at RPH despite what anybody may say. Good luck, Cheers, Steve

Speedy recovery Pete.

I feel this could potential have happen to any of us sailing on the river, with the heavy boat traffic at times.
Not sure of the exact details etc.

There is only one unique Scottish Pete on the river, and we need you back out there mate.
Get well soon and let me know if you need anything

Sorry to hear the terrible incident that would affect you both mentally and physically for months to come. I hope for a speedy recovery and racing me on the river again. I'm not looking forward to the earth is flat talk, jfk or the world trade centre stuff but love having ya out and about.

Accept what's happened mate, and move forward to bigger and better things, and gybes

We all need a laugh in hospital was this you?

I read this entire thread to Pete today and he was very touched and appreciative of the good wishes. He asked me to mention on here that he would be happy to receive calls. He has his own phone connection in the hospital- Just call 9224 5600 and then enter 0681808.

He has had two operations so far, and is waiting for more on Friday so there's a lot of lying around with nothing to do, so any chance to have a chat on the phone would really help to cheer him up!

I was sailing with him around the far yellow mark on the other side of the channel and the white buoy near the pelican. I gybed around the yellow mark and he was coming into the mark as i was heading back to peli. Thats the last i saw of him and he really can't remember much but i think he must have been cleaned up on the run back into Peli. I'll give a statement to the police tommorrow.
