She started from Rhode Island, and is due back there shortly. She was also one of the sailors who survived the storms that Ken Barnes had to get rescued from. Given that her boat was considerably smaller, 28' vs. 44', one has to question how well prepared Ken really was.

In fact, Ken sent her an e-mail, which I thought was hilarious... what a schmuck!

Donna,
you are the most experienced person available to help you now.
Just wait it out in Bermuda, you know it will change in your favor.
Love,
Ken Barnes.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
