@smack: thanks for the welcome. It's funny how when you look back on something; how it turned out forms your perspective. No harm no foul.
No one was hurt... nothing was broken... we were on the water maaaaybe 30 minutes.
One of the BEST days sailing ever
If we were in a smaller boat there may have been some soiling going on and the memories wouldn't be so fond, "and we all got into the car with our jackets around our waists because we threw out our crapped-in-pants and drove to the nearest bar."
Not all adventures are dangerous... and danger isn't always adventurous.
You can have fun and be safe, and be dangerous doing something boring.
