'Hurricane-like' winds destroy Canada's sail at boat race

STORY: Sail GP, which posted pictures of damage to the Canadian team boat, said "a major weather event" in Sydney Harbour had forced the cancellation.

"As far as we know, no one was seriously injured during the incident. A full assessment of the damage is under way but it is likely some of the future Sail GP events may also need to be delayed," Sail GP said in a statement.
