Description

In August of 2013 while photographing the America's Cup races, I caught this image of the New Zealand boat making a sharp turn at the end of the course under the Golden Gate Bridge, when they incurred a "DAGGER BOARD" failure and the nose pitched under the water throwing 2 crew members over-board. Both crew members were subsequently retrieved by chase boats. Although the nearby chase helicopter was close by at the moment of action, they probably were not facing the proper direction to capture the event on video.
