The yacht looks like a Spacesailer 24 & the chopper has the Westpac symbol on the side so it looks like its off the Australian coast somewhere.

Looks like the guy drifted in to an area of breaking waves. Reminds me of a video of the guy sailing under a San Francisco bridge where the same thing happened. Only this time there were no surfers to come to the rescue.
