Great Video Paul :) :)

The best rough water clip I've seen yet!!
Some day, someone will make one of a tug crossing the Columbia River Bar, which can be a bit wild as well!
Been there, and done it.


...Cheers...

  That weather does make sleeping difficult for the off duty crew members. The fact that the cook can't make a hot meal doesn't help either.
  The guys I truly felt sorry for were the rig crew, that we were often transporting offshore. We had a "special" cabin for them. We kept empty coffee tins laying about for them to barf in. After ten or so days of sailing in that kind of a blow, with nothing but sammiches to eat, and little sleep, the exhaustion took over. You just lashed yourself to your rack, and made the best of it. The stench from the sloshing bilges didn't help either. Even using the head was an adventure because of the water being propelled like a fire hose from the toilet!
Ah, the fond memories of time at sea...I miss it. ;)

The Esvagt Omega on her way to assist the West Gamma.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eZiNrdsdQ4

SUMMARY:

    * Full gale force (waves up to 9-12 meters, wind 55-60 knots).
    * Night operation.
    * Helicopter winching not possible due to strong winds.
    * Two ESVAGT vessels rescued 46 out of 51 survivors.
    * No serious injuries.
    * The FRC on the ESVAGT OMEGA launched and recovered 7 times.
    * Total four vessels participated.   

STORY:

On the 20.08.1990 the accommodation rig "West Gamma" (WG) was on tow from Norwegian to German sector. Due to heavy sea conditions the tow was lost and WG started drifting towards the German coast.

ESVAGT OMEGA was released from her standby duties at the Danish Dan Field and ESVAGT PROTECTOR released from the Gorm Field to go to assistance.

No helicopter lifting operations could be performed due to a damaged helideck and heavy movement of the legs. At the time of rescue all helicopters but one was released.

During the night the situation for the WG deteriorated and evacuation was necessary. The crew of WG tied up in groups of 5-6 persons and jumped into the sea group by group.

During rescue with the FRC each group was spotted and illuminated by use of the helicopter's searchlight.

Later ESVAGT A/S was awarded "Leith International Safety Award" for the rescue.
