Our old friend Len Burke sent in this incredible shot of the Canadian Coast Guard training on the wild Vancouver Island coast.

Dave Ashurst took these shots a few weeks ago at Cox Bay near Tofino, Canada.  He had a tripod and a telephoto, and was in the right place at the right time for this coast guard lifeboat to hit some crazy swell.

Good thing those boats can roll! Not sure about those guys on the top deck, though.
