Better view:



Seriously - they were trying to recover/salvage this:



The ragflapper seems to have survived pretty well - bet the RIB didn't. Terwats!

I'd hope my mate on his rib might come to my help a bit quicker than this guys did!!
Lucky none was hurt or worse in that sort of surf!!

The rescue services & coastguard, had elected to not recover the yacht, due to the conditions and the fact it was beached and "safe"

Why not just leave it. They'd never have towed it off when completely grounded.

In willk's 2nd vid, it says they were trying to get a line to a trawler to pull it off.

Nuts.
