Every time I read a story in the papers or the electronic equivalents that I know something about I find errors, often significant errors. Accordingly, I doubt everything I read in the media. It would seem that something odd was going out there that day-and-a-half, but I wouldn't be surprised if what was reported bears very little relationship to reality.

That said, I've seen a lot of stupidity on the water.

sail fast, dave
