I dont think that you can get away from the fact that this company are putting people who trust them into these positions for a profit.

Something really doesnt add up here. minor injuries to me are cuts, bruises and scrapes. if the helm has a broken shoulder and jaw that doesnt sound minor to me! on the other hand, it maybe minor to a doctor who deals with life and death every day?
Whatever happens, i agree with the majority that putting to sea with this blow forecast was foolish at best and dangerous as it turns out.
If i had anything to do with the company i would be telling the skipper to keep quiet until i had received a full de-brief and putting out a company line to stick to. i would be VERY concerned about the future implications of this not so isolated incident!
well done and thank you to the life boat and rescue teams who have recovered the situation, i am sure the crew will think very highly of them, as for the skipper, that remains to be seen....

Personally speaking, I would like to see this guy's commercial license revoked, and the injured crew taking the company to court for negligence.
We could do without [removed] like this in the industry.
