    Got to respect the chopper crew, especially the fella going down into the
    sea and plucking the sailors off rafts, that would take immense courage.
    And not just once or twice, but 8 men, all that adrenaline, all that

    alone actually do it. I hope he was recognized with some sort of bravery

    in Australia, a tough place to sail and why Australians are the best
    sailors in the world, its in us.

    history recorded.
