A sharp lookout and quick action by the crew of a British yacht in the Gibraltar Strait saved the life of a motorboater who had leapt off his burning boat a few weeks ago. It goes to show that in this age of fly-by-wire button punching from beneath the shelter of the sprayhood a really good Mk 1 eyeball watch is indispensable.
I saw this today on Facebook, thanks to West Marine. It's a year old and I can't believe that I hadn't seen it. Moreover I didn't know this story. I was in London during 9/11 so never heard about the evacuation by water. Bigger than Dunkirk! Extraordinarily moving. If you haven't seen it, you have to watch this.
