You missed where the spinnaker wraps around the forestay cause the skipper turned the boat too fast...
and the boat gets knocked down due to the spinnaker wrap.

As all this is going on the spinnaker will stay full of wind, no one goes overboard, and you can hear the cheering from the other boats with the hint of jealousy.
Piece of cake.
Have I missed anything?
This seems like a Kodak moment.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
