The power and speed of the catamarans used in the America’s Cup has attracted criticism since the AC72 rule was announced. Sir Keith Mills cancelled his British Team Origin America’s Cup campaign in 2011 partially due to concerns over safety. Oracle’s first AC72 pitch-poled in October, 2012 after only eight days of sailing. Though there were no injuries to the crew, the yacht was heavily damaged as the tide pulled it outside the bay into the Pacific Ocean. On May 9, 2013 Swedish team Artemis’ first AC72 yacht flipped resulting in the death of Olympic medalist Andrew James Simpson.
