When a ship has to fight the forces of nature, there’s nothing much a seafarer can do apart from keeping a strong heart and handling the ship to the best of his capabilities.
Here’s a video of one such ship (bulk carrier) which was caught in a storm near the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa (according to the description provided with the video).
The video shows the vessel listing more than 30 degrees as it battles the waves to maintain a steady course. At one point, the waves almost covers the 160 meters ship, splashing the water all over the deck.
How many times have you experienced such bad weather at sea? Let us know in the comments below.
