Re: Bryan Chong's first hand recount of the Low Speed Chase tragedy
"Agreed. Staying far off a lee shore should be plain common sense,"
But that is not racing. Racing routinely means rock-hopping. Means figuring how far you can push the most favorable tack. Means putting up ever so slightly less than too much canvas, and as the saying goes "if you didn't break anything, it was all too heavy and you weren't really racing."
As your insurers might say, racing is inherently dangerous and that's why many of htem won't cover a boat racing.
