Barcelona, Spain (August 31, 2022) – After a successful day of sailing, Alinghi Red Bull Racing’s BoatZero was hit by the violent rain squall, which developed over the city in the afternoon. While towing back with sails down, the boat bounced into the wind and was pushed on to her side.

Some of the crew members were knocked overboard but were promptly recovered by the support team. Everyone returned safe and sound to the team base.

“Alinghi Red Bull Racing’s BoatZero suffered minor damage to the port foil arm and to the hull,” explained Silvio Arrivabene, Co-General Manager of Alinghi Red Bull Racing. “We will be back on the water soon, carrying on with our preparation for the 37th America´s Cup.”
