Telefonica Big Wave Crashes - Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12  

Amazing footage of Volvo Ocean Race competitor Team Telefónica being
slammed by two monster waves as they blast through the Southern Ocean in
over 40 knots of wind on Leg 5 from Auckland, New Zealand to Itajaí in
Brazil . The crew experience life at the extreme as they hang on to
whatever they can grab a hold of in a near capsize.

The footage,
shot from one of the four fixed cameras on the boat, shows the entire on
deck crew - including the helmsman - twice knocked off their feet by
the impact of the up to 10 metre waves.
