Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013
This thread brings up some interesting points. Maybe I missed the answers, but here are my questions:
Say you are on a race or cruise and either you or one the crew wants to get off the boat and you are 1,000 miles from land. What are the options? What if the reasons to get off the boat are due to violent actions by captain or one of the crew? In cases like this what action should one take?
If its a crewed boat, it's ez enough to diffuse by swapping watches. If you're two up, writing snarky messages to one another with a felt pen on the mainsail works. You just NEVER threaten anyone. Once you do that, as RD did on Day 7, you've opened Pandoras Box.
