Yacht Sunk By Container - East Coast South Africa

An impressive rescue of four 60+ years old crew by the NSRI volunteers off a dangerous coast in fortunately relatively calm conditions.

Impressive that the rescue boat had to go almost 80 miles to get to them and then find the liferaft in the dark. Lifesaving stations along South Africa's east coast are obviously spread far apart. Also interesting that the semisubmerged boat washed ashore later.

Even more so knowing that the rescuers were in a hard bottom inflatable, hopefully a really big one.
