Training for EABR's Lamu to Zanzibar expedition suffered a setback over the weekend as 2 of the riders suffered broken hands.
Firstly Craig Rogers broke his hand playing 'rugby'* in what on-lookers described as a "horrific and eye-watering tackle".
In a separate and unconnected incident, veteran kitesurfer Justin Aniere broke a fingernail sanding the deck of his sailing dhow, Sawa Sawa.
EABR Health and Safety Officer, Marc K Rogers, commented: "these two incidents highlight the importance of refraining from dangerous activities and staying in top physical fitness for the expedition. We wish both of them a swift recovery"
Craig's wife, Jenny, was unavailable for comment.
*Editors Note: 'rugby' refers to a casual game of touch in the park, no girls were hurt in the same game.
