I can kinda see how, an entire crew being seasick under the conditions the rally went through, even if some of you think those conditions "not all that bad", would increase the risk of something catastrophic happening if everyone on the boat was impaired and unable to make a reasoned decision. I don't know this for certain, but if on top of that the crew was inexperienced, that risk would be even greater.
Not really understand your point. I understand what you mean but are you saying that a Mayday should be issued if all the crew is seasick, it is inexperienced and that can potentially lead to a very dangerous situation?
