Sailor’s high seas drama

Posted on February 20 2012 at 1:15:03

Barnt Green amateur yachtsman Nick Woodward had to be checked out in hospital after being flung across his yacht cabin in rough seas off the coast of Taiwan.

Nick, aged 53, a former chartered accountant who is competing in The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, hit his head so hard on the cabin lockers that he cracked the plywood.

The yacht, Gold Coast Australia, continued without him and he is now flying to Qingdao, China,  where he will rejoin the yacht for the next stage, across the Pacific to California.
