The international broadcast team for the 36th America's Cup give their take on the key moments on the 36th America's Cup.

This includes several interviews with key team members on their recollections of some of the more spectacular incidents, which due to the accelerated nature, or sensitivities, of the Prada Cup and 36th America's Cup, were glossed over.

If you want to cut to the chase and hear Terry Hutchinson expand on the Patriot capsize on Day 3 of the regatta then start in at 25mins, the segment runs for 10 minutes.

Further on it becomes clear that Prada skipper Max Sirena knew the Italian team had to get as many wins on the leaderboard as possible, to avert a bounceback from Emirates Team New Zealand. For their part ETNZ skipper Glenn Ashby admits they were on the backfoot after two days of racing, due to their lack of match racing experience. In fact it took three days for the Kiwis to gain the ascendency over the Italian challenger.

There's plenty more frank comment from all the teams on their and other team's performance. Remarks that can be made now the regatta is over, and the outcome known.
