Hi Everybody,

As the title says, Oracle Team USA has flipped their new AC72. Thankfully, the reports say no one was injured but the wing was badly damaged. They flipped near where I was sailing last Sunday (SFYC) and floated all the way out past the Golden Gate Bridge. It looks like they have turtled and possible shattered their wing. I will be sending more updates out, stay tuned and fingers crossed for Oracle Team USA.
