Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013
It isn't 1810 and the crew aren't Shanghaied drunks waking up under the command of Capt. Bligh.
You should read up on the HMS Bounty story. You owe it to yourself. I recommend Caroline Alexander book, The Bounty, based on a very thorough research. Bligh was a consummate navigator, sailor, and captain. None of his men were shanghaied and the mutiny happened in 1789, mostly because large part of the crew wanted to stay on Tahiti.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
