After New York and with the next race of Chicago, America’s Cup approaches to the final event of summer 2017 at Bermuda through the Louis Vuitton Sailing Series events.
The competing teams are six and, among them, SoftBank Team Japan, led by Dean Barker.
The video below shows the wonderful funny falling overboard of one of the six crew members, Winston MacFarlane. Falling in water, in a little ridiculous way, may happen to anyone, even to experts: MacFarlane (who, fortunately, didn’t hurt) comes from New Zealand and he has already experienced four America’s Cups and many races on TP 52. So, the best of sailing.
Cameras caught the boat slowing up abruptly. A braking which caused to Winston MacFarlane a poor figure!
