Team Oracle Crewmember Recalls Capsizing
Listen to the audio:
Oracle Team USA says its campaign to defend the America's Cup in an international regatta next year on San Francisco Bay won't be affected by Tuesday's spectacular and expensive capsizing of the team's 72- foot racing catamaran.
The accident destroyed the craft's huge wing sail and was captured by dozens of cameras. The crew wound up in the Bay, though fortunately no one was injured. Salvage crews battled high winds and strong currents to retrieve pieces of the broken $8 million boat and tow it back to the team's base in San Francisco.
What does the capsizing mean for the team as it tries to get ready for the America's Cup?
Host Tara Siler talks with crewmember Rome Kirby, who was on Team Oracle's "AC-72" when it capsized.
