People can once again expect to see Oracle's impressive 72-foot catamaran sailing around the San Francisco Bay.

Monday morning, Oracle Team U.S.A, put their $8 million boat back in the water. It has been undergoing repairs since it flipped over last October during training.

The crew used the accident as an opportunity to make design modifications. The accident made the Oracle team lose about two-thirds of its practice time, meaning they have some catching up to do.

The America's Cup race sets sail this summer.
