Good video but not a continuous live reel. I wonder what hit the cutting room floor.
blimey you blokes expect a lot

my guess is that the cameraman probably put the camera down and got on with helping to secure the ship

then as soon as the situation was stable he started filming again

it is real..... not pretend

that that is why it works

I think you will have to guess what happened

all round - darned good job

Towards the end he mentions it wasn't.

Shame this show isn't available here on BBC America. Looks like a good one.

Is this a sailing program or is just this episode about sailing?

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

I love the British, they are so professional about everything. That was very British of them how they handled the grounding.

Great Vid and a very cool customer. Real time example to us all.

Indeed he did remark on a boat comeing in on land acording to his GPS. He may have been off his entry track or the tide had droped enough to allow contact with the rock this time.
Checked my charts and no sign of a rock marked in that area, altough there is a Priests Rock at the mouth of the next inlet south. Loch Ailort.

Safe sailing
