America's Cup: Am-Cam Video of Artemis Racing's final run
Sat, 11 May 2013
Video shot on May 9, 2013 of Artemis Racing's final run on San Francisco Bay, before she had her fatal capsize later in the day.
The Am-Cam video shows her sailing quite normally.
Wind was about 18-20kts. Current was a moderate flood, which means water was fairly flat. Overall typical spring/summer conditions for SF Bay. 10-20 minutes later the boat capsized and suffered massive structural failure.
Second shows Oracle Team USA sailing very quickly in a fresh breeze, easily the fastest we have seen to date.
