Classic Photographs

Looking through the hundreds of photographs taken by the Venturers
Search and Rescue since 1961 , thought these might be interesting

Hit wreck of Vanessa of Needles IOW. Saved by 20 man life-raft inflated
in bow , and pumped out by Venturers

For got to open sea cocks ; fire put out by Venturers ; but so low
in water swamped by passing car ferry and sank

Man overboard , was holding when wind took him aloft.

Anchored at high tide St. Blelades Bay Jersey ( French Man ) Towed
off with Hay lard Tow . on rising tide as swell started to bounce him on
rocks.

Can't see what the problem is in number two, it just needs trimming out.

I'm surprised number 3 isn't an extreme sport!

Number 3 looks really good fun although I doubt he felt that way.
