Matthieu SOUBEN and Gurvan BONTEMPS (FRA) had a nasty moment in Tornado race 5 on Thursday.

So what was going through their minds when this happened?

'M***e!!! I will not capsize. Let's go, let's go, let's go.'

Their determination paid off - amazingly they saved it and didn't capsize.

Juergen Tiemann was there to catch it on camera.
