This is supposed to be cutting edge sailboat racing. These boats should be pushing design limits. If there is an occasional failure, then that's a part of the extreme engineering process.
These aren't production boats - they are designed to race under controlled circumstances and, as an America's Cup contender, pushing rules and design limits is part of the heritage.
I don't want my Honda Accord suffering a catastrophic failure, but if it happens to an F1 car pushing the limits of innovative design, then it's OK.
Plus, it makes cool videos.
