Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Thanks for your input here. I actually crewed aboard the first "Pride" for a short time on the Chesapeake. I never saw any heavy weather with "Pride", but was curious how most of these tall ships would handle say a 60 knot blow in say 30 foot seas. Can they make any windward progress? Would they furl all sails and motor? Or would they hove to or run with the wind bare poles?
