But I think you nailed the problem...it's the "wishy-washy" nature of group think that has to be accounted for in these rallies. And the SDR, it seems, is currently not doing a great job of this IMUSO.
So, then... It's the rally that makes it abundantly clear that each skipper is SOLELY responsible for the preparation of his vessel, and the choice of his departure time
- and NOT the one that touts the notion that their " ‘experts’ are there to take the pressure off of that decision... to ensure the fleet makes it across the Gulf Stream and into warmer waters in the best possible conditions"
- that needs to better address the matter of "GROUP THINK"???
OK, we'll just have to take your word for it, I suppose... :-)
