Another Atlantic Rescue

Just spotted this

HMCG

All 4 rowers picked up by a Merchant Ship from the liferaft and currently on route to Ireland,

Just goes to show the importance of the Merchant Fleet and the part they play in these situations

Yet another "freak" wave - makes me wonder are they really "freak" waves if they happen so often?

The sea can throw a hell of a lot at you - modern technology is starting to make some people take it for granted!
