America’s Cup Capsize Archives

Four-time America’s Cup champion Russell Coutts found out Monday just how tricky it can be to sail in San Francisco Bay. The first day of the America’s Cup Race Management test period saw Coutts capsize his 45-foot catamaran in spectacular fashion. One crew member was slightly injured, and the wing-sail was clearly damaged. Otherwise, it was just another day on the Bay as Larry Ellison’s Oracle Racing Team gets ready for the 2013 America’s Cup.
