A dramatic scene broke out at the Prada Cup in New Zealand.

In the 6th duel of the preliminary round between Italy and America, the US yacht "Patriot" from the American Magic team capsized. The team was in the lead and, after three defeats in a row, was on the way to a possible first victory.

The eleven-person crew around skipper Terry Hutchinson and helmsman Dean Barker shot their yacht in a strong gust shortly before the end and then lay on its side.

Probably no injuries

According to the first reports, the crew remained uninjured and received help from both the organizers and other teams in recovering the boat. The race win went to Patrizio Bertelli's Luna Rossa with helmsmen Francesco Bruni and Jimmy Spithill.

Previously, Sir Ben Ainslie's British Ineos team prevailed against the Italians and extended their lead in the Prada Cup to 4-0. The Italians are in second place with 2: 2 points ahead of the Americans without a win (0: 4). The Challenger Round for the 36th America's Cup will continue on January 22nd.

  • Comment from Fabian Meier (FabianMeier96)
    Hutchinson's role as a tactician and grinder is definitely open to discussion. however, it seems that this additional power is needed on this team. in teamuk, on the other hand, giles scott has free hands and can plan the next steps all the time. with boots that are almost as fast (which is a real miracle that teamuk is now “in the game”) this is probably the decisive component. the tension is definitely there. the direct comparison with etnz is still missing ...

    Skipper Hutschinson, explained his goal in various press conferences and supported it with an example. No stone will be left on the table. He looks dogged and has probably overdone it. It is impressive that these yachts mostly fly over the water with over 70k.mH. These new foilers on the side make this possible. Fascinating but also very dangerous because even higher speeds are possible. When will Alinghi get back in?

    Fortunately there are no injuries!
