I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that in a few days or so they will be reporting on the news that this whole thing was a hoax. Who knows though, crazy things happen. Its just rare that someone is there waiting with a camera.
Look at the guy in the boat. Either its photoshopped or he has the slowest reaction time of anyone in the sailing world. I mean I'm sure you could have heard that thing coming out of the water also. He is still looking straight ahead.
