25/04/2011 - Auckland (NZL) - 34th America’s Cup - AC45 test event - Day 1 - Oracle 1 capsize and redress OracleTeam USA© www.oracleracing.com
While the leap from the windward hull to the briny might be 'only' 26ft, we bet it looks a Mile High from up there, and so James Spithill and the crew of Oracle Racing join the crews of Emirates Team NZ and Artemis Racing in making the Mile High Club.
And if you thought a 26ft leap was a test of courage - the same feat from anAC72 will be a fall of 46ft - just about enough to deploy a parachute :-)
