Wow. Well written.

Even on this quick text book rescue it took 8 hours to accomplish in F8 gale and the whole ships expert crew making a ship do what it's not designed to do.

Great work.

Incredible. The entire time the crew was on the ladder, I worried the sailboat's rigging could hit him.

My 1st thought too.
They planned and set the line and ladder so it shouldnt happen

Lucky the guy was not injured and had enough strength to climb the ladder too.
Lesson learned: Calling for help is the easiest part of being rescued.

Not their first rodeo. The ship crew looked like they treated it like buisiness as usual.

Sailboat guy looked very proficient..rolled in the napkin of jib, secured for possible later recovery, gathered his important stuff, not paniced

The article indicates it took over 5 hours for the ship to get there, so this was in the middle of the ocean.

At the end of the video it says the keel was damaged.

I wonder how? Is there any more information on what caused this?
