In our January issue, out tomorrow, get all the info you need on helicopter rescues

Motor Boat & Yachting has been granted privileged access to video and take part in a Coastguard helicopter rescue training mission.

We teamed up with Solent Coastguard for a feature in the January 2013 issue of the magazine, out tomorrow.

As well as landing a crewman onto the bathing platform of the sportscruiser MBY was running, we also filmed the Coastguard dropping a rescuer onto the top of a flybridge boat.

Make sure you pick up a copy of the magazine for the complete feature, and to learn what to do if you’re ever involved in a helicopter rescue.

You can also view the video accompanying the feature below.
