Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
... I know as a majority, the TSC let out a sigh of relief when we read Captain Miles' words. He is extremely well-respected for his experience and knowledge in the community.
Thanks for your post and your explanations. I had the intuition that TSC wanted badly not to be confounded with the Bounty and you make that clearer as already had done another poster that crews on tall ship Gazela.
I love tall ships and traditional wooden boats so I understand very well your concern with the repercussions this sad adventure with a bad ending can have on the Tall Ship Community. I hope CG can find a balanced compromise between the needs to regulate the ships and crews in a way to warrant a good level of safety and sustainability.
