ORACLE TEAM USA, the defender of the 34th America's Cup, has capsized its giant AC72 catamaran on San Francisco Bay during a training session. No one on the crew was injured.
The capsize took place during the team's eighth day on the water. Conditions were fresh, with building winds whipping up waves against one of the strongest ebb currents of the year. As the team turned the giant catamaran downwind, the front of the boat nosedived and the boat pitch-poled.
"There's no question this is a setback. This will be a big test for our team," said skipper Jimmy Spithill. "But I've seen these guys in a similar situation in the past campaign before we won the America's Cup. A strong team will bounce back from it. This won't stop us from winning the America's Cup."
