image/video source

Emirates Team New Zealand rounded the windward mark to starboard and dug the bows in to the main crossbeam in a violent maneuver. Two crew, Rob Waddell and Chris ward went overboard and were recovered by the team's chase boat apparently unharmed. But Aotearoa suffered damage to the fairing on the aft side of the main crossbeam. - [filed under: ships]
