Saturday 11th August 1979. 303 sailing boats with 2,700 people on board set off in ideal conditions from Cowes, Isle of Wight, for the biennial Fastnet yacht race. 72 hours later, 15 sailors had drowned, several boats sunk, more than 20 had been abandoned and a huge air-sea rescue was under way. John Rousmaniere who sailed in the race, tells the story and deeds of heroism by the Navy, RAF, Lifeboat, other ships, fishing vessels and by the yachtsmen themselves. Some amazing photos.
