This is the moment Taylor Canfield’s United States dramatically capsized during Bermuda’s practice racing.

The incident unfolded in the third practice race of the day, when the top of the wing looked to invert the wrong way.

The USA F50 immediately flipped over, but luckily missed the nearby teams of Emirates GBR and New Zealand. Thankfully all athletes are accounted for, and the damage sustained to the F50 is being assessed.

The rest of practice racing was incident free, with ROCKWOOL DEN, New Zealand and Australia topping the leaderboard after three fleet races.
