Episode Summary: June 2008. Skipper Steve Conway, safety officer Roger Stone, and their four-student crew of Texas A&M participate in the annual regatta at the Gulf of Mexico when their sailboat capsizes in the dead of night. One man sacrifices himself to save two students trapped in the cabin, and the survivors struggle to survive 26 hours in open water, battling the heat of day, the cold of night and haunted by the distant unmanned oil rig in the horizon.
Provided is a question worksheet to accompany the episode which focuses on science topics like: human body injuries, extreme temperature, dehydration, sunstroke, starvation, and survival techniques.
