Official sources say that two people were injured when the 72 foot catamaran capsized during training on San Francisco bay this afternoon.

The two injured crew were rushed to the St Frances yacht club by a Team Support Boat one reportedly being underwater underneath the boat for approximately ten minutes while others struggled to free the crew member.

Officials say that CPR was performed on the crew member however sadly the crew member was pronounced dead shortly after, the second members injures are not life threatening.

The boat looks like the port hull has broken away from the beams and is lying upside down in the bay and will be towed to nearby Clipper Cove, between Yerba Buena Island and Treasure Island by a commercial salvage company.
