It's a huge amount of sail area for a 13000 pound boat so they are very sensitive to pitchpoling when running downwind. I'm no expert but I'd guess they didn't have enough tension on the backstay to flex the mast and give extra lift on the bow.
I just compared it to my boat. Same weight and 21 times as much sail area.
