The Capsize Club – OnCourse Ep24

I know America’s Cup has lost all its appeal in the last few installments. Still there are professional teams wasting multi-mega-millions of Woolongs on this atrocius circus. This episode of OnCourse looks like there’s some fun to be had … at least for us gongoozlers:

Five of the six teams that will take part in the next America’s Cup cycle have been out testing and training. Two of them have been for a swim, one have been in the drink twice where their second capsize turned out to be pretty serious. Matt Sheahan reports on this and other news from the America’s Cup. Plus, The Ocean Race fleet got battering on the opening leg of the round the world race. We also report on a brand new foiling machine that anyone can fly along with more news from the world’s biggest boat show, Boot Dusseldorf.
