This was safety week at ORACLE TEAM USA as the team was put through its paces through a series of simulations designed to prepare the crew for any number of emergencies.

"We've put together a week where we can go through a number of simulated scenarios that match what we went through in the capsize of the AC72," explained bowman Brad Webb.
"During that situation we managed a lot of things well. There were a lot of things we learned and a lot of lessons we need to build on. That's what we're going to work on this week.
"We've built a simulator that represents one of the cockpits in the catamaran and we're going to put that in the channel, roll it into the water and work on getting ourselves out safely."
The week included first aid training, pool sessions and work with a simulated AC72 cockpit that could be inverted in the water.
