Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Maybe the captain wasn't so stupid. He knew he was going where he wanted, when he wanted and he controlled everything, down to the food and water. He probably perceived these incidents as disputes, or arguments. Remember there was a language barrier.

And he apparently didn't charge them with anything, or if he tried to, no one believed him. Mutiny sir? Isn't that your boat over there where you docked it? Is anyone injured? No? We looked at you track, seems about like the other boats sir. No major or unusual deviation. Oh you disagreed about sails? I see. Have a nice day sir.
