Nice shots and actually it looks like pretty good weather for the recovery other than the swell I'm sure. Good work Jack and of course job well done by the boys from Navarino...cheers/hat's off.
I learned that it is easier to bring a 44 foot sailboat along side a 1100 foot container ship than vice versa. We were in the lee of Navarino in good conditions; that really helped.
