Crack in skegg in line with the lower edge of pintle see photos

Chris Paul

I am not sure what to do about this one - hopefully someone can advise me.

The boat came out of the water yesterday and this crack was noticed. 
Maybe zoom in a bit.
The second photo shows the crack about 10mm below the paint scraper sharp edge and in line with the pintle.

Obviously it needs fixing - before I go back into the water.
How could this happen?
Have other boats had this problem & fixed it successfully?
