Good reason to wear a Lifejacket...

BBC News - Unconscious sailor rescued from sea off Dorset coast

Have to assume he was wearing the right kit to float about for over 2 hours out there . Its been rubbish weather out there too.

Saw the Swanage boats launched late last night and the wind was howling...

A short hop in the tender could have turned out very differant .....but not out of the woods yet for the guy . Fingers crossed ...
