A day with the Australian SailGP team as they go for their first day sailing on San Francisco Bay, and try a new flight controller.

A great view of some of the technology on boat the F50, as well as the debate on whether they blew through the 50kt barrier. Onboard it says it says they did 52kts.

There's also a couple of other shorter videos from San Francisco along with a replay from Sydney the first round of SailGP.

Round 2 gets underway in San Francisco on Saturday and Sunday
