This well-timed photograph by U.P.I.'s Jerry Taylor caught all kinds of trouble in progress aboard the British cutter Uomie (foreground) last week at the start of the 21st biennial race to Bermuda from Newport, R.I., where 700 sailors showed up in 110 yachts (a record entry) to find that the main was bounding early in the game, as Lerner and Loewe might have put it. With a 43-mile-an-hour wind blasting, Uomie's crew in an excess of hardiness were attempting to set their big spinnaker when the wind pulled the sail way out over the water and the unfortunate crewman assigned the task of hauling the spinnaker up was hauled up himself (next to mast) and went across the starting line hanging six feet off the deck.
