Whilst Team Phaedo Media Team were preparing for Phaedos arrival at the Fastnet rock, there was a call from the Irish Coastguard, for all ships in the area to be on standby.

Being the only boat that had braved the weather and high seas for the ultimate photograph of ones yacht at "The Rock", we immediately abandoned project and called in to help.

All crew on the up-turned hull of Rambler were fine and well, but 5 crew had drifted off from the upturned hull and were no longer in sight. We searched the area were they had received a personal EBIRB transmission from and miraculously found the missing 5 crew after they had been in the water for 3 hours..

We pulled aboard our dive vessel owner George David and his 4 crew members who had all been strapped together, cold, but healthy, happy, safe, and well.

Team Phaedo. your Media Team promise to catch you at the finish Rolex Fastnet Race 2011
