Video: Oracle's Jimmy Spithill goes overboard in practice

  • 21/04/2017

Oracle skipper Jimmy Spithill was even more red-faced than usual after taking an ungraceful dive from his boat during a practice session on the Bermuda waters overnight (NZ time).

The Australian opted not to attempt to save himself from spilling overboard after losing his balance on deck, instead taking a fall into the drink at high speed.

"I got slingshotted off the back," said the America's Cup winner.

"I had a split decision to make, can I stop myself? I made the decision that I could not stop myself."

You get the feeling he may have a tough time drumming up any sympathy.
