Some folks are just not meant to venture out upon the water, it's as simple as that...

Morons, in particular... (grin)

All these people had to do, was manage to make their way under sail back into Hampton Roads and around behind Willoughby Spit to a protected anchorage, a distance of perhaps 3 miles from where they decided to drop the hook Friday night... the local conditions throughout that night were a light to moderate ESE, would have been dead downwind past Ft. Wool and on over towards Hampton, or around the spit into Willoughby Bay...

Instead, in advance of the approach of a hurricane and the forecast E-NE winds placing them off a lee shore, they decide to anchor in the open waters of the Chesapeake...

No wonder they "declined to be identified"... Un-freakin-believable...
