At anytime they could have verified the on board water in the hold, as well as the bottled water. They never asked. The facts are not as sexy, understood, but sailor is not a noun, it is a verb. It takes 8hrs to learn how a wind foil works, but a lifetime to perfect a sail in open water. Character is the most important quality that a sailor can have. What kind of sailor will sully a 107yr old revered Trans Pacific Race and its qualified participants as members of ORR/US Sail? To cast themselves as the archetypes of 'Super Hero's' ? Hmm their agenda has yet to be perfected. TRANSPAC has been upping crew standards for at least 47 years, friends and sympathizers along with Dawg and Jake, how about upping yours? Jane
THANKS SAL NICHOLS FOR attempting to but some lite on this dark thread. I do not want to get into a he said they said kind of twaddle, you just have been so Corinthian in putting (?) into the 'fable' I felt I owed you the validation by stating facts. Jane
