Formula 40 catamaran

I was watching the Thomas Crown Affair last night and there was a scene where they were racing Formula 40 catamarans (from what I found out searching the internet for boat type). They were flying the hull very very high and at one point one boat capsizes. On a boat that big how do you get it righted back??

"On a boat as big as a Formula 40 how do you get it righted back??" With a crane, but in skilled hands they don''t capsize very often.
