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.
