X40s: Tough injury for Pierre Le Clainche at Qingdao

Pierre Le Clainche, 2x F18 Youth World Champ along Antoine Joubert, and currently racing with Red Bull on the ExSS,  suffered a bad injury while training at Qingdao for the Extreme Sailing Series. Really sad news on young sailor that is creating his path right from our own Formula 18 Class.

Just contacted him and he told me got several injuries on the ExSS training day in Qingdao.
"My left arm was damaged in a bad way and nobody can say if  I''ll use it again on the future. He is on Hong Kong airport in transit to Paris.
It's a bad shift but I'm getting ready to fight hard and to come back very soon. I'll let you know as soon as I'll have new updates from Nantes Hospital."

Pierre, I wish you a promptly recover, all the best from the Catsailing community, you'll come back even stronger.
