The media crew for Team Phaedo, one of the entries in this year’s Fastnet Race, was standing by Fastnet Rock when disaster struck on RAMBLER 100.  It’s incredibly fortunate this accident occurred in this area, or the 5 crew members who found themselves drifting away from the upturned yacht may not have been found in time…  The following are images from Team Phaedo’s media team as they supported the rescue of the Rambler crew.
