Re: A couple wisely decides to head back in...

Seems to me the "wise" decision would have been to not go out. They saw exactly what the weather forecast said it was going to be like. I hope she was not hurt when trying to get the jib out, looked like she caught herself with her face, ouch. That is why you check the weather before heading out, but I think just looking would have been enough to determine it was a bad idea.
