Race organisers confirmed all of the crew were "accounted for and unhurt" as Team New Zealand were left to assess the damage to the catamaran, which could yet scupper hopes of continuing in the event.
"One thing is, as a group of New Zealanders, we are incredibly resilient".
One broken wingsail in warmups on Wednesday and a subsequent capsize that damaged the replacement sail and placed questions marks over structural strength and electronic and hydraulic functionality has the Kiwis on the back foot. The Japanese team now have a two-race lead in their best-of-nine series.
Wild weather conditions in Bermuda forced the postponement of today's racing in the challenger semifinals, handing Team New Zealand an extra 24 hours to get their boat back in shape following yesterday's terrifying capsize. Certainly, in thirty years of racing boats, it was the most full-on, exhilarating moment I've ever had.
"The teams have many many smart people in there, who've told me since the inauguration of this class that they will be able to handle sailing in these conditions", he said. "At this stage of the game they all look pretty good and they're all pretty keen to get back out on the water - as am I", Ashby said.
In contrast to the first encounter, it was Dean Barker who won the pre-start duel to claim the early advantage, with Nathan Outteridge trying and failing with a penalty call. "Obviously we won't have a spare and if we do have another issue, we are up against it then".
Artemis Racing's day went from bad to worse as their challenge was hampered dramatically by a penalty, awarded against them for sailing out of the racecourse boundary on leg three.
The Kiwi boat appeared to get on its hydrofoils too quickly as it made a hard maneuver and lost control, with its bows burying themselves in the water and the boat flipping in what's called a pitch-pole, coming to rest with the top of the wing sail in the water.
Ainslie's crew trail 3-1 in Bermuda after they broke a wing on the first day of the last-four clash for the right to face the defending champions from the USA. It gives our team a sniff of coming back.
For racing to go ahead, America's Cup rules require a minimum average wind of 6 knots (11 kilometers per hour).
