Dramatic footage by RNLI Mudeford as the Alchemist yacht sinks at Round the Island Race 2016, on July 2, a 50 nm course that rounds the Isle of Wight in the UK.

Skippered by Andrew Talbot, Alchemist (built in 1978) hit a shipwreck off The Needles. The crew got off the boat just seconds before she sank in 17 metres of water just east of the Needles.
