    Not sure about innocence . . . was he thrown out? Otherwise, not so innocent.

      No, it was a capsize. At that part of the lake the wind can behave unpredictably and if you don’t concentrate you get wet. So, you are probably right about the ‘innocent’ bit.

    Have you never before seen a water-skier awaiting lift off?
