Red Bull Sailing Team in dramatic capsize

Alinghi won the only race on day three of the third Act of the 2017 Extreme Sailing Series in Madeira.

For Adam Minoprio and the crew on board SAP Extreme Sailing Team, Alinghi’s one win was not enough to dislodge them from the top spot.

Land Rover BAR Academy finished the race in fifth, meaning it remains in sixth overall.

Red Bull Sailing Team was unable to start the only race of the day because of damage sustained to its boat in a capsize before racing began. The crew were all unharmed.
