About the shot :

Carnage in Cardiff, Team Mexico thread the needle between Team Wales and Red Bull Sailing Team during the Extreme Sailing Series. Just as the team came to bear away through the gap they were caught by a gust pushing them into a capsize, narrowly avoiding Red Bull with the hulls only to have the top of the rig miss team wales by inches. No one was injured as a result of the capsize and the boat was not damaged and was righted and Team Mexico continued racing.
