Many have read the accounts that I have written about our capsize experience on the Didi 38 "Black Cat" in the Cape To Rio Race 2014. It is not possible to visualise what it is like to be there in that situation, even if you sit inside your boat and try to imagine it turning around you but this video goes a long way to help visualise it. It is not fully realistic because the roof stays at the top as the boat rotates, so the world is rotating around the boat rather than the boat rotating within the world around it. To provide better visualisation the camera needs to stay upright while the boat goes upside-down.
It is not an experience that I would recommend to anyone, yet it is an experience that I am glad to have had and to have survived.
It also validates the toughness of the methods of construction that I have used for these plywood designs, that "Black Cat" came through with minimal damage.
