A Kiwi sailor is in jail in San Francisco after a protest against the America's Cup ended violently at sea.link
The drama unfolded last Sunday morning when the United States Coastguard responded to a distress call from McCormick who claimed to have lost his best friend Spot overboard.
"He'd said something about an America's Cup protest - and soon after boarding his boat started throwing about five of his own sail bags overboard," Zarwell said.
Zarwell called police who alerted the Coast Guard, but when armed officers arrived McCormick refused to allow them on board, apparently saying: "This is a peace ship, any attempt to board my vessel is an act of war."
