I completely agree with him. So, I think the real takeaway here is that the way their rally is organized seems to be wrong.
Well, a far greater percentage of the 22 boats in the 2011 NARC Rally had to be abandoned, with the loss of one life...

But, yeah, it's the way the SDR is organized that's all wrong :-)
