Correct - Goody was dropping heavy hints on the audio feed. Sorry Paul Goodison

Barker was told the maneuver was going to be difficult. He was well ahead and all he had to do was round the mark and finish the race. But he had another brain explosion and did it anyway. Now the boat is broken, and they're 4 losses in.

ETNZ chase boat pitched up to help.  Looks like they are starting to win in terms of salvage.  Bloody trick trip home from there through the channel.  

Be a bit of fresh water hosing down tonight!

LiveSailDie is calling it a "Salvage"

When a boat fills with water and sinks like that, they have moved to salvage mode now. 

AM is in the semi final and LR and TI will be duking it out to see who gets the bye.

Side cockpits communicate with the main hull in all sorts of places.

The leverage that foil arm would have applied to the hull may have been catastrophic

Fuck the mast angle suggests whilst they mght be winning the war of the back of the boat, the bow appears to be well under water.. it might have a bigger hole letting water in, than what they have to pump water out of...

Hull must have been compromised 

For sure. Buoyancy when they righted vs a few minutes later definitely indicates they're taking on water.

I'm guessing something where the foil arm joins the hull. That foil was fully out of the water and slammed down flat.

If they lose patriot, then AM's campaign is over.....which would mean no more RR, no semis, just straight to the final which will be darn shame.

This will crucify the TV and advertizing budgets.

Quite a bit of deflection was visible on the leeward foil cant arm so you may be right.

Boat is obviously fast (in anything over 7 knots).

Will make a great story when they overcome all of these setbacks and win the AC.

Sky Tower looks to be a long way in the distance so I'm assuming a good distance for her to travel to safety

Sure, not unlikely, but they still have Defiant, don't they? I have no idea how much work it needs to be able to race, but if it's significantly less than getting Patriot back on the water, and if they are allowed to switch boat (are they?), why not? 

Work on Patriot while sailing Defiant in the RR and Semi and try to stay in. This shows us how easily one of the other teams can crasch out as well, so worth to stay fighting if at all possible. This was a race win until it wasn't..
