Onboard cameras have captured American Magic’s dramatic nose-dive in their new America’s Cup yacht.

The syndicate released video footage of the near-miss on their debut sail in the AC75 they hope will win back the Auld Mug for the New York Yacht Club.

The boat lifts out of the water and plunges nose-first with water surging over the deck, covering the grinders.
