Eric's Adventure Fieldtrips

Eric returning from Carcass Island, Falklands

The water temperature was 35°F (2°C) and the wind speed was 60 knots!

Doesn't this look like fun? Less than 15 minutes later (after I'd left the Zodiac) the Zodiac turned-over, dumping two crew members into the cold sea. One crew member suffered from extreme hypothermia and had passed-out before being rescued.
