Capsize

Found this when surfing (the web!!) the other day and thought that it may be of interest!

http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/whitslb/video.mov

Not sure if this has been posted before but will not do any harm for another look.

BLOODY HELL

And they are close to shore with and on shore wind !!!!! Not a good position to be in ...

it looks as if they are RNLI or some such similar org ... at least they will be prepared and train for such an event.....

God I hate quicktime - the video is crap - shame as it makes very interesting watching!!!

It seems to me that upenders are the most common form of capsize - maybe the desire to avoid a stuff is a little bit too strong for most people with RIBS???

Surely moving the console forward and the crew etc would help in such situations?

Big file - save target as would be best!

Has been posted before but awesome all the same - look at the video right at the start and they almost lose it in exactly the same way!!!

I was speaking realtively - thank God there aren't that many involving RIBS anyway!
