Re: What strategy do you employ when using a drogue
I have never deployed a droque but did some reading around the subject when planning on what I would do if I ever was unfortunate enough to be out in survival conditions.
Bernard Moitessier writes at length on his use of drouques and trailing warps in pretty extreme conditions down in the southern ocean aboard Joshua.
It is worth finding the passage and reading it through to it's conclusions. He is one of those who have 'walked the walk'.
