GREETINGS EARTHLINGS Babtisem by fire you did well in the break-down of the event and you have learnt many a good lesson. If I could offer you some tips it would be the seven P's Rule, Planning Practice Preperation Prevents Piss Poor Performance! if you think you need to reef it sould already be done, do not hold onto sail to long you are not raceing, do you have life jackets and harnesses on when on deck and are all lids and haches secrued so cannot fall out when in a roll (bungy cord)? where you fastened to the boat when rolling around (Jack-stays in the cockpit)? where coast-garuds awhere you where where ? Radio contact with other vessel in your area ? And didyour remember to thank your Crew ? Thanks goes a long way. GO SAFE.
