From the article you linked to, he was caught in "five-to-eight foot seas and 15-knot winds"

He was planning on crossing the Atlantic and couldn't handle 15 knot winds and 5-8 foot seas? Hmm... And this was his second attempt? Perhaps it's a good thing they didn't tow his boat back again this time.
