Big Seas vs. French Frigate Latouche video

This video has been out for a while. It shows a French warship, a frigate, "Latouche"

Latouche-Tréville is a F70 type anti-submarine destroyer of the French Navy.

Here is a Wikipedia article about the ship

The frigate is 456 feet long. Notice the ship at point 1:20 in the video and notice the size of the wave it goes over, in comparison to the 456 foot long ship. Big wave.

Ahoy All Sailors! Do you need experienced crew for a long voyage either Atlantic, Pacific, Caribbean, PNW, ICW, coastal or across an ocean anytime in 2017? I am available on short notice. See my CF Profile "About Me" page for details. Happy to lend a hand!

Thanks for sharing I'd rather be onboard a good seaworthy sailboat on seas of that magnitude..
