Nice one from the Finnish military for Boomeranger.

Pretty sure RNLI do have a few clips at least they showed us some action clips of Atlantic 21 in the early days when we where trained in IOW (some 25+ years ago) maybe will not be counted as hardcore turbulant clips nowedays but was at that time, since that have flipped few time over myself unfortunately no pics or vid clips.

The real crazy stuff I've been out in you wouldn't dare let go with one hand to use a camera... Cherbourg to Poole, night time on a 30' sailing yacht, force 8 gusting 10-11 upwind. It took 15 hours and I won't ever do it again unless someone's paying a lot of money...

No I am home for the moment.

Weather fantastic 9 degrees little wind so what more can I ask for, perhaps take flight tomorrow "home" to the snow and to have a spin in the Solent Thursday and back home Friday............

When I flipped over my old Fletcher it was the time of bulky video recorders........ and even before that inflatables.........

Could agree perhaps not the great fun time when in action but surely rememberable afterwords..........

During race or even during SAR in bad conditions, asking yourself what the heck taking all these puncture and torture and even thinking this is my last race or rescue mission ones it is over and adrenalin still flowing..... you want to go on next race sooner than later and funny enough goes same after SAR mission and it doesn´t matter if it is a succesful one or not. Wonder where this gene comes from.........

Still want to be back to SAR work again.... but keep tellin myself that time is over....... unfortunately listen to myself sometimes

We were actually going home after spending a month dossing around on the north coast of France...and all I really remember was BANG BANG BANG as we slammed down into the troughs-oh, and customs telling us on the VHF that we could go straight ashore as we deserved it.(twas in the days of having to remain aboard for an hour for customs clearance-showing my age there!)
