Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013
what you cite is mutiny verbiage (rockDAWG does like his verbiage)
And, puffing up. Apparently. But, yeah, I took some of rock's story with a grain of salt. People tend to embellish when telling a story. Regardless of how bad, or for that matter, good, the experience is.
Sure, we weren't in imminent danger, but we didn't want to find ourselves in imminent danger, either, and it was looking to end up that way.
So, this was more a psychological fear, than one based in fact? If so, I certainly can see how, being stuck in the middle of the ocean in less than optimal circumstances could magnify the fear of imminent danger.
