If you sail – when was the last time you carried out a man overboard drill?
The fantastic job carried out by our Skipper Sean and all the crew on the Derry~Londonderry~Doire in locating and rescuing Andrew (Taylor) can be seen in the video of Andrew’s rescue from the North Pacific. All the man-overboard drills that form part of the Clipper Race training really do save lives.
It is amazing to see that after an hour and a half in the water, Andrew is still able to assist the team rescuing him, and talking to Susie (Medic) shortly afterwards.
More information on Andrew’s rescue can be found on the Clipper Website - Derry~ Londonderry~ Doire Successfully Recovers Man Overboard.
