Tall ship on a storm.

And changing subject to old ships: Fantastic video on Yacht magazine about the
voyage of tall ship "Beijing" around Cape Horn. If they had Gopro at that time It would be an incredible one, as it is, using old and big equipment it is just amazing how they managed to get these images:

MOVIE:

Mit der "Peking" rund Kap Hoorn - Yacht TV - Segel Videos von Europas größtem Yacht Magazin

The bigger problem on storms in what regards ship safety at that time was the boat roll and looking at it....is just frightening as it is the conditions those guys went up to the top of the masts.
