First AC 72 Pitch pole…..

…..and it caused them almost loose more than the rig!

Apparently it is quite the big deal when these things flip, unlike the smaller AC45’s that seem to go over regularly. After extensive hours, efforts and a strong ebb tide, the crew and the boat made it back to shore. The enormous wing however did not fair so well, I think it will be a loss.

Good luck Team Oracle, getting back on track.
