SC31...that is just wrong. She had extensive short trips to shake down and refit her boat after problems arose and sailed up to Newport from the Caribe as well as preparation o her first ocean crossing. She didn't have a lifetime of sailing...but was completely familiar with her boat and tested her own skills in discrete steps which Barnes did not do.
