Top yachting commentator, Peter Montgomery, had control over the Auckland airwaves on an all too rare occasion, this afternoon and managed to slip in an interview with New Zealand sailor, Murray Jones, one of the crew on board Oracle Team USA's USA-17 when the AC72 capsized last week.

In this interview Jones reflects on what caused the capsize, and how some of the crew had to jump/drop 50ft after the capsize.

Last week, Emirates Team NZ's Grant Dalton reflected on the Oracle Team USA capsize and what it meant for the team and other America's Cup competitors.
