Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013
The first temper tantrum was your cue to leave. There is absolutely no reason to stay aboard after that.
As you experienced, things go wrong fast and can get out of control fast, good or bad crew.
Please learn from this, you can point fingers at the crazy people, but you stayed aboard. if there is a next time, leave and don't look back.
Particularly ironic, that this story comes from one who - through the various 'Bluewater vs. Production Boats' threads that routinely occur here - has maintained that the choice of boat matters little for offshore passagemaking, instead it's all about the CREW
... (grin, bigtime)
I would suggest you continue to read and read and then read some more. It will soon realize that it is not the blue water boat that is important in crossing the pond. It is the sailor who knows how to sail blue water.
