No, did not flip. Had a jib batten come loose. I was trying to limp back in. About a 1/4 way back I hear "ting". Look over and I see it bounce off the tramp and into the water. Tried to turn back but it was a goner. Oh well.

I put a stopper knot at the end of all my batten ties. They might come loose but the batten won't fall out.
