From Germany's foil snapping to five boats crossing the start line early, we round up five moments you might have missed from last weekend's racing in Taranto.

Australia dominates Race Day 1

Australia hit the water with purpose as racing got underway in Taranto, mastering heavy winds to convert excellent starts into two race wins. Australia and Emirates GBR headed into the second day of racing at the top of the leaderboard, tied on points.

Germany's foil snaps

A dramatic moment unfolded on board Germany when driver Erik Heil accidentally sent the board - which had just been lifted - back down again. The board snapped under the force of water - and Germany had to retire from the rest of the day's racing.

Five boats start early

Light winds on the second day of racing challenged crews, especially during the starts. As teams headed towards the start of Fleet Race 4, a total of five boats - Germany, Canada, France, Switzerland, Denmark - were early, while the United States was late across the line.

A dramatic finish in light winds

With finally poised points, everything was to play for in the fifth and final fleet race. France needed to finish ahead of Canada to make it into the three-boat Final, but lost their lead - allowing the U.S. to scrape into the Final by the thinnest of margins.

Emirates GBR wins after Final terminated

The winds continued to drop throughout the second day of racing, resulting in the termination of the three-boat showdown between Emirates GBR, Australia and the United States. Emirates GBR's consistent racing record - which saw the team never finish below 3rd - resulted in Ben Ainslie's team being crowned the ultimate winner of the event.
