Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Of course, the boat itself wasn't really the problem, though it wouldn't have been my first choice, and the provisioning definitely had issues. The skipper, crew, and their management were a whole another matter. Someone could conceivably be a technically competent sailor, but somehow not have had enough experience with unstable, dangerous, or insufferable personalities to recognize their signs in time... or could be too focused on achieving a voyage to listen to warnings.
