RickQuann I remember seeing this video on TV a few years ago and if memory serves me correctly, it took place in Australia. Pretty dramatic footage. Thanks for posting PDP

JiffyLube Good lession to be learned. On anything in the water, never get sideways to a wave...I learned that years ago in surfing.

Ilenart 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.

johnshasteen I feel for the guy. On another note, he's living proof for why I have run before the storm in both of the Force 10 storms that I've weathered over my sailing years - my fear in both storms was that if we tried to hove to, we would go beam to the sea and flounder.
