That was when we rendezvoused with the container ship Navarino to effect an medical evacuation of the one of the crew. Video to follow. In the process we broke the starboard sidelight, deflated two fenders and scratched the rub rail. Little no no damage to Navarino.
They took the crew member to LA from whence he flew home. He has surgery scheduled for next month.
The winds were generally great but we did have to motor in light winds.
