Re: Rallies Gone Wrong

Two sister ships of mine were in the rally. They both left a day early and kept in sight of each other for much of the time. Both had uneventful, safe passages.
As good as Chris is at the end of the day you are responsible for your decisions. If you are going to stay ahead of a front you need to be in a boat big enough and fast enough to make that happen.
Boats delaminating speaks to the unsuitability of that vessel for this endeavor. One wonders about the details of the lost rudders/toe rails/steerage in a similar vein. ?Maybe just bad luck but ???
