Human damage on board Alinghi

Murray Jones, Team Alinghi's strategist, broke his left foot this afternoon while training on board Alinghi on the Hauraki.

"The wind was blowing at ten knots and the two Alinghi boats (SUI 64 and SUI 75) were involved in routine training when Murray's foot got stuck in the mainsail sheet, said Xavier Jolis, Team Alinghi's physiotherapist. "We will have to wait a few days to assess the injury but it looks like Murray won't be able to sail for a few weeks", he said.

Murray Jones has been sailing many years alongside Team skipper Russell Coutts - together they won the Americas Cup in 1995 and 2000.
