The Wind can be cruel at times. No time to turn to wind. I have been there myself and been unable to react. Not in such a grand racing machine as that though.

I capsized my Shearwater catamaran a couple of times (many years ago). Once the mainsail is underwater it's a real b*gger to get a cat righted.

although I've never done it in anything nearly as big as that boat. I once capsised the boat as I was giving my wife her first sailing lesson - needless to say she reminisces about it every time the subject of sailing crops up with friends.

Mine always went over the side on the downstream mark. A non swimmer but very brave.^|^

Actualy it was the boat beside it that caused it to capsise. Its pontoon(?) went under the pontoon of the capsised boat and lifted it. Bad driving.

I beg to differ. Look again. It was a wind gust that almost took out the second boat as well.

The following boat went to starboard very quickly to keep upright. No time to bear away I think. I bet it got the adrenalin going for the crews.
