Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Probably the only person involved I would take on my boat

Jake - seriously - assuming one mutiny on the resume doesn't keep you from ever getting another ride, you owe it to yourself to get on a boat with a competent and semi-sane skipper and crew to see how things are done. See how watch schedules are set, how the crew races and practices together, does MOB drills, goes to Safety-At-Sea seminars, and 1,000 other things you never saw on your trip.

I still don't get the need for a "film crew", but who knows the reasoning?
