Rescues - 2005

Dom was rescued from his kite-powered purpose-built craft Little Murka in mid-Atlantic after he had activated his McMurdo EPIRB. Enduring hurricane force winds and mountainous seas Little Murka had repeatedly rolled and broken free from her sea anchor before finally capsizing and filling with water.

When help arrived, and before he abandoned ship, Dom switched the EPIRB off and left both the EPIRB and his boat to their fate. 11 months later the yacht was washed up on a Northern Ireland Beach at Malin Head, having travelled un-manned an astonishing 2,500 miles across the Atlantic.
