Oh, the Schadenfreude! Oracle's 72 foot America's Cup catamaran capsized and is being pulled by the current out the Golden Gate Bridge.

I'm not sure if this is the same crash, but that hull shape is really interesting, looks like they buried the bows and pitch-poled (which seems to be a trend, I've seen one from the shorter boat series that looked like the same type of capsize): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drgglIebuQY&feature=youtu.be

Can you name your boat "Maria" and help recover it?
