Join the YM crew as they abandon ship to a liferaft in the swell of the Bay of Biscay

 The November issue of YM contains advice on how to cope with life in a liferaft.

Before putting pen to paper, technical editor Chris Beeson took a yacht from La Rochelle into the Biscay swell, and with winds reaching Force 7, he jumped off the boat and into a four-man liferaft. YM’s happy snapper Graham Snook was on hand to get the pics and took the video camera along too.

The footage from onboard the liferaft is truly stomach-turning.
