Summary
Rescue of the Bounty is the harrowing story of the sinking and rescue of Bounty-the ship used in the classic 1962 film Mutiny on the Bounty-which was caught in the path of Hurricane Sandy. On Thursday, October 25, 2012, Captain Robin Walbridge made the fateful decision to sail Bounty from Connecticut to Florida. Walbridge was well aware that a hurricane was forecast to travel from the Caribbean toward the eastern seaboard. Yet he was determined to sail. As he explained to his crew of fifteen, a ship is always safer at sea than in port. He intended to sail "around the hurricane" and told the crew that anyone who did not want to come on the voyage could leave-no hard feelings. No one took him up on his offer. Four days into the voyage, Superstorm Sandy hit Bounty. The vessel's pumps could not keep up with the incoming water. The ship began to lose power as it was beaten by hurricane winds that spanned eight hundred miles. A few hours later, in the dark of night, the ship suddenly overturned ninety miles off the North Carolina coast, sending the crew tumbling into an ocean filled with towering thirty-foot waves. The Coast Guard then launched one of the most complex and massive rescues in its history, flying two Jayhawk helicopter crews into the hurricane and lowering rescue swimmers into the raging seas again and again, despite the danger to their own lives. In the uproar heard across American media in the days following, a single question persisted, why did the captain decide to sail? Through hundreds of hours of interviews with the crew members, their families, and the Coast Guard, the masterful duo of Michael J. Tougias and Douglas A. Campbell creates an in-depth portrait of the enigmatic Captain Walbridge, his motivations, and what truly occurred aboard Bounty during those terrifying days at sea. Dripping with suspense and high-stakes drama, Rescue of the Bounty is an unforgettable tale about the brutality of nature and the human will to survive
