Oracle skipper Jimmy Spithill flung overboard in 2017 America's Cup training

Champion America's Cup skipper Jimmy Spithill has fallen overboard in the latest training drama in Bermuda.

The Australian yachtsman, looking to win a third consecutive cup with Oracle, found himself a victim of the G-forces involved on the foiling 50-foot catamarans during a turn as he was flung off the back of the boat.

Spithill made light of the incident after he had to be collected by the team's chase boat.

“I got slingshotted off the back,” Spithill said.
