Just a quick question, when the second 40' wave caught him, what was his actual position to the wind - close hauled, beam reach, broad reach and also the position to the wave - heading into it, reach away from it? I find I am extremely curious as to the position of the boat in these types of incidents. I am also curious as to what the consensus is on what should be the boat position be when seeing a large squall coming - again, close hauled, beam reach, broad reach (assuming you have reefed the main and reduced the head sail or had rigged storm staysail). Any input would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks.
