No, see Den that's just it! Many would call that a "bad" decision. I won't. It was a choice to sail in challenging conditions for completely valid reasons. And you did great! THAT'S BFS!

I'm convinced that the reason you didn't have to punch your EPIRB is that you have your Magma safely tucked under the bimini. Drogues schmogues - THAT'S actually the key to heavy weather sailing!

Now c'mon, dude, spill the beans! Tell me about the snorkel!
