Re: Knock Downs
I had a bad knockdown last April at 42 degrees South in the South Atlantic after a successful eastabout rounding of Cape Horn. It was no fun and did about a thousand dollars worth of damage to the boat in just a few seconds. It was the last bad weather I had after a total of nearly five months spent in the Southern Ocean and an eastabout circumnavigation of more than 40,000 miles. Go figure.

Okay - this sounds like a hell of a story. Do you have a write-up of it somewhere?
