Emirates Team NZ Nosedives
Emirates Team NZ popped up onto its hydrofoils rounding the mark and then a gust of wind hit. The port bow of Aotearoa buried up to the main crossbeam, reducing the boatspeed from 40 knots to 13 and flicking two crewmembers, Rob Waddell and Chris Ward, overboard. The two grinders were recovered unharmed by the team’s chase boat, but the rush of tons of water tore the port side fairing off the main crossbeam and left the crew shaken.
