A tanker passes the yacht as it goes out to sea. A 72 foot Oracle vessel training for the America's Cup, capsized in San Francisco Bay Tuesday Oct. 16, 2012 and currents carried it out into the ocean.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Crews worked into the night trying to secure an Oracle catamaran that capsized in San Francisco Bay Tuesday afternoon and drifted out to sea.

Officials say the racing yacht flipped during a training run around 3 p.m., then currents pulled the vessel out past the Golden Gate Bridge.

Coast Guard spokesman Lt. j.g. Josh Dykman says the Coast Guard did not have to rescue any of the crewmembers. No injuries have been reported.

The Coast Guard is standing by, but race officials say members of Oracle Team USA are working on the righting the boat or having it towed back to shore.
