Re: Sinking of Rule 62
It hurts every time when I think about Rule 62. I feel the pain of Laura's family. I was told that she was the last minute replacement crew after the previous crew (also a she) could not participate in C1500.
But anyway, Suing the Captain is just wrong. We all know the risks when we sign on the voyage. Making other responsible for the death is troublesome for me. It is going to have a profound impact on future in crewing and captaining either pay or not.
But it is easy for me to say, I respect their decision/action.
I read, I think, and I act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest on Sailnet, nor I am here for hookup. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of sailing the big Ponds. I am NOT afraid of drowning in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
