I'm planning to add a sea anchor and snatch-block arrangement that the Pardys wrote about in Heavy Weather Sailing. Then I'll check to see our rate of drift - and check to see if we can get the protective slick to windward, as opposed to aft and windward. When we hove-to a week or 2 ago, we "sailed" out of our protective slick.
It will have to wait until next year, we are taking the sails off today.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
