real sailors

You think you know how to jury rig some shit and limp home?  Get a load of these Canadians! The crew of HMCS Lockeport sailed 350 km under this rig following a severe storm that disabled her engines in January 1944.  They made a square course and a proper mizzen from hammocks and blankets, making good progress before finally rendezvousing with a tow.
Cool sailing story from the fun folks at the Royal Canadian Navy Fans page.
