Graham, sure it was scary but it is experiences like that which make one a better sailor (provided of course you survive ) and as Eric Hiscock once said "Anybody that hasn't experienced the effects of true storm cannot speak with any authority on the subject" (or something similar)

Whilst I have no desire to repeat the exercise, I will be a whole lot less frightened next time around.
