Ok, so everyone seems to agree there was some useful footage there which might help people to understand (i) how to reduce their risk of capsize and (ii) what you can do once it happens; along with the accounts of those involved of what happened and lessons learned. I am sure that is a really useful resource for new and experienced members alike because I presume that very few people are willing to push their boat to (or beyond) the limit to find out first hand. So are those involved able to write a nice clear account of events and put the videos etc in to illustrate it so those of us who are too soft to learn first hand can benefit?

If you post it here (and maybe more than one of you wants to contribute) then I'll collate and move to a new closed thread it so it remains useful for future learning rather than a debate about whether it was good seamanship.

I'll second that, it is not often it happens and it is even less often that it is caught on video so there is real educational value in it for all of us. So please lets have the videos back up.

Good idea, but I think it should be refilmed to make sure we get all the angles covered!
Happy to come out to assist in the making of the Flipper part two
