Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

I don't know about the belief that a call for help will bring it. We were about 5 miles off shore late at night, returning from the Bahamas, when a squall blew through that pegged the anemometer at 70. After about 30 minutes of hell my dad was freaking out. He told me to call the CG with a Mayday. I did. They hung up.
