Close Call Capsizing Video for Oracle Team USA

During an official practice in Bermuda, Oracle Team USA hits an unexpected gust of wind, flies a hull, and then almost capsizes. Thankfully, the team was able to “depower the boat and settle back on two hulls.” Serious damage could have ensued had the boat capsized which would have been a devastating loss for Oracle Team USA this close to the official race. They say practice makes perfect, and sometimes practicing means you have to smooth out some bumps and unexpected mishaps. Go team USA! (I guess you know who we are cheering for ;).

A local on Bermuda caught the entire thing on video. Watch the video below and let us know what you think. Have you ever hit that point where you thought you were going to capsize and you ended up saving it? I know it’s happened to us a few times!
