TRAGEDY AVOIDED! How it should be done!

Read this story this morning over coffee & thought I'd share with the non-Aussies. My Sailing: Report on textbook rescue of six crew after yacht sinks

Great result and kudos to Grant Dunoon, his crew & the rescue teams.

(You may want to skip down to the paragraph above "The Search" if you are rushed).
