Lindsey Vonn

Lindsey Vonn was all too eager to take a ride on New York Harbor with Oracle Team USA, the winners of last year's America's Cup.

There was only one condition. "If I go on, I don't want to just sit there," she said, according to Red Bull.

In the end, Vonn did everything but sit: She got her hands dirty and helped out the team, eventually accepting posts at various points around the boat. She also managed to have a little fun, bending over the edge of the boat while the rest of the team kept the ship straight.

"I was nervous because I did not want to mess up," Vonn told Red Bull. "But then as I got comfortable, I started asking to do more things to challenge myself. I got to do some grinding and I put the foils down. You can tell visually that you are rising out of the water on the foils. An incredible experience."
