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... :-)
