Overboard!: A True Bluewater Odyssey of Disaster and Survival
by Tougias, Michael J.
In 2005, Captain Tom Tighe and first mate Loch Reidy welcome three inexperienced crew to the 45-foot "Almeisan" for a passage to Bermuda. Four days in, an enormous storm swept captain and first mate overboard. The crew managed to send an SOS, but the Coast Guard helicopter pilots and rescue swimmers were soon in almost as much trouble as those trapped by the ferocious ocean.
