Unbelievable, I highly doubt they were seeing sustained 40 kts. Sounds like the 25-30 Gusts to 40 to be more likely. I was out in the same stuff last Sunday. It was a lively day. Practiced heaving-to. Good times.
Edit - For some reason I thought that I read that someone claimed that they were seeing sustained 40 kts, but it was only gusts to 40. Still, I can't believe anyone would abandon ship in such conditions. Methinks they need another hobby.
