Yup, definitely NOT a Transpac race boat :-)
If part of the problem was language, another part might have been different expectations. No clear consensus on the goal. Maybe Harry and Jane really were just going for the " oldest person to cross" pickle dish, but Jake and RD thought they were racing. That explains the spinnaker disagreement, and some of the water disagreement as well.
