America's Cup: Photo sequence of near capsize on Day 5
Sun, 15 Sep 2013
Sail-World's Richard Gladwell was on the south-side of the course on San Francisco Bay, when Emirates Team NZ suffered a low pressure situation in her hydraulics while attempting to tack underneath Oracle Team USA, and almost capsizing.
In this sequence we show the start of the extreme situation, as it reaches close to the point of no-return, and then crashes back onto two hulls forcing Oracle Team USA to alter course to avoid.
