Re: Lost my rudder!

Looks like you did fine, all things considered.
Sometimes you can jury rig a rudder using a paddle attached to the swim ladder mount - you may have to reduce sail if the ladder mount is not very sturdy - you do not want to rip it out of the transom.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
