Capsize Testing Footage

The following link will take you to the two files of footage from the capsize testing during the Shackleton Epic sea trials, in March 2012  These trials were conducted in Portland Marina, Dorset UK, the footage was shot by Peter Wooldridge.

The view from outside Alexandra Shackleton shows the crew testing what happens when the vessel capsizes. The internal footage shows how small/cramped she is below deck and you will see a “dummy” rolling over and landing on the roof when she is capsized. Four men and the gear will be below deck at most times – two people will be on-deck at most times.
