Redding op de Atlantische Oceaan van de veertien opvarenden van de Clyde Challenger



Februari 2017 - This is my own footage from the last voyage of the Clipper 60 Clyde Challenger from St Lucia to Scotland after being hit by a severe storm five days out from the Azores the boat was knocked down and dismasted with myself and 13 crew on board 40 hours at the mercy of the North Atlantic with only a handheld VHF for communications.

After a failed rescue attempt by the merchant ship CPO Finland we were rescued by the Royal Navy's destroyer HMS Dragon which deployed a 24ft rib to transfer us off the boat. Due to the damaged sustained in the storm and attempted rescue the Clyde Challenger was unseaworthy and if left would be a danger to shipping so it was decided jointly by the boat owner and insurance company to scuttle her.
