    Kevin Escoffier rescued by Jean Le Cam after 11 hours in life raft as his yatch hit a wave at ?27 knots and broke in two/folded in half , PRB last position 40 degrees 55 S 9 degrees 18 E, 840 miles south of cape town in 25 – 32 knot winds and 3 -5 meter seas.  Remember that episode you both did with another couple on life rafts  in the pool!!

    Yes, it was a sobering experience, and that was in a swimming pool. I can’t even begin to imagine what these guys went through.

    Peace and fair winds!

    terrifying !! but, maybe , better than a airpocket in a capsized boat like  Jean Le Cam experienced a few years back .
