Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
The captain had not some responsibility it has ALL RESPONSABILITY.
He was only there because he decided to be there, in a Hurricane leaving a safe port, where a similar tall ship stayed without any problem.
Paulo, which tall ship was in the same port? As I mentioned in a previous post, Picton Castle was in Nova Scotia, roughly 300 miles from New London, CT where the Bounty was. Here is a link with some pictures of a marina in New London after the storm: Hurricane Sandy Leaves New London Shore Pummeled - New London, CT Patch
