Re: Rallies Gone Wrong
We were on our way to Bermuda and crossed golfstream at the same time as the Salty Dogs boats.
We encountered constant 25 to 35 knots but fortunately from the south and high seas (10' to 12'). Pushed us off course a bit but it was manageable. We were on a C&C 35-2.
The most unsettling thing was to hear the USCG calls that night. Navy was involved as well. I remember one boat had trouble responding to the radio calls so they ended up communicating via their Nav lights! CG hovered around until they could get a clear response. These folks do great work...
1979 C&C 30 MK1
