Knocked down four times ? Okay I get to be the bad person and ask, was she hove to ? Flying storm sails ? Running before the storm ? Did she deploy a sea anchor, drogue ? Did the drogue fail ? ....

Or was she just sailing along eating her oatmeal under reefed sails letting the boat get knocked down repeatedly while hoping for the best ?

If my boat got knocked down four times in a row I might start wondering if I was doing something wrong ...

Being knocked down multiple times and not losing your rig, I don't call that being prepared, or being skilled, I call that plain old being lucky.
