Matthew Sheahan's exclusive account of crew's lucky escape
The October issue, out now, carries a dramatic account of Rambler 100’s capsize in the Rolex Fastnet Race following the loss of her keel after rounding the Rock. Matthew’s Sheahan’s vivid story tells how the 21 crew were rescued and how close they were to not surviving.
With liferafts that couldn’t be deployed and confusion over the information supplied via the personal locator beacons worn by the survivors, there were plenty of lessons learned.
Richard Langdon’s dramatic pictures of the rescue and the inverted 100-footer alongside Sheahan’s story make for a must read for anyone who races or sails offshore.
