Leeboard Failure - Shear Break at Bracket

On the sailing rig, the leeboard broke right along the connection to the bracket connecting it to the ana. This happened with about 10 mph winds after tacking several times. It appears, at least for windy sailing, a different design or material may be needed to prevent the broken paper clip type failure from repeat stressing. Ideas or suggestions? Thanks.Broken Leeboard
