American Ethanol after crash

It is with much sadness that we learn of the death of veteran offshore racer Keith Holmes, while competing in the OPA St Clair Classic, and his driver Jamie Sartin who was critically injured.  They were taking part in the Extreme Class when the 40 foot Skater Ethanol Cat Can Do was involved in the crash with Miss Geico.  The crew of Miss Geico escaped unhurt but judging from the damage to Cat Can Do, it appears the impact was on the port side area of the cockpit.

Our thoughts go out to the family of Keith Holmes and no doubt an investigation will recommend safety pods on offshore boats as are fitted in the F1 and F2 cats.
