Excellent documentary on the race disaster in 1979 today on Radio 1- Doc on One. Well worth a listen. It was a grim year for disasters. From the Betelgeuese /Whiddy onto the Troubles, Warrenpoint etc.

Morning Earlybirds! If you watch one thing today, make it this. 40 years after the disaster this film speaks to the survivors. And on Breakfast we’ll hear from a navigator who spent 38 HOURS at sea during the rescue.

Remembering the Race 40 years ago - 19 sailors dead despite the frantic efforts of rescuers. A tragic night for many families. A worrying night for many more including my own.
