Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
It seems that there is yet some good amateur sailors out there
. About this one I have mixed feelings: I would have not attempted to cross the Atlantic in such a light and small cat, I guess that it was risky and foolish but at least the guy took the risks alone, did not cry for help when things went wrong (and he had an Epirb) and I guess he would have made it back home alone.

I, for one, wish there were more people out there like that.
