World On Water Global Sailing News – May 18, 2018
Published on May 18th, 2018
This week’s “World on Water” global sailing news show produced by www.boatson.tv.
In this week’s “WoW TV”:
Scallywag skipper David Witt talk exclusively to WoWTV about Leg 7 of the Volvo Ocean Race from Auckland to Itajai and the dramatic Man Overboard tragedy involving his long time sailing friend John Fish.
Witt tells us how it happened and the unsuccessful retrieval attempts made by the whole Scallywag crew. This makes for a riveting, dramatic conversation made by still a clearly devastated skipper. Witt also talks of the race, the boats, the future of the race, who will run it, and what type of boats he thinks should be built to compete. All this and boatbuilding between “Tomato Stakes”.
This candid, explosive, dramatic, UNEDITED video is just two friends talking about a horrifying MOB incident in horrible conditions 1,000 miles from land. He describes how the yacht’s motor was useless against the conditions when trying to return to the MOB location. It takes the full programme and everybody who goes to sea should make it a must to hear what to do in terrible sea states.
