Re: Race yacht sinks, crew plucked from water.
ORCV run races in some of the most treacherous waters in the world so most crew, if not all, have done practical sea safety and survival courses. ORCV, AMSA, the crew of the stricken yacht and the crew of the rescuing yacht all did a great job under the circumstances.
Luckily the Yacht was a few Kms out to sea as the shore is mostly large waves breaking onto cliffs.
