BoldSailor is on a distinguished road
"They should be able to adjust the mizzen and staysail in a manner to heave to."

As it turned out, as the Captain and crew were trying to adjust the sails, the helmsman reported that we were headed in a beautiful North direction. Away from the worst of it. Staysail was changed to leeward and we sailed off north, to await word of Sean's direction. He headed east, so we did sail to Beaufort. Arrived safely but a bit worse for wear.
