Looked like something went wrong with their foil controls.  They had already borne off from close hauled to a beam reach successfully, then appeared to do a sudden unexpected bear away.

BIG SPLASH!

The footage from Instagram shows the American syndicate’s smaller AM38 test boat flying nose first into the water, with the boat quickly capsizing.

It's understood it was late last year in the earlier stages of training, but the American Magic crew are yet to reveal exactly when or where the incident happened.

It's also believed former Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker was at the helm at the time.
