Despite pleas for not rushing to judgement on this they have continued posting negativity, ineuendo, distorted charts and personal opinions disguised as factual information.
1) Why would you keep a log? To what purpose? What will you do with the log?
2) ...negativity, ineuendo, distorted charts and personal opinions disguised as factual information......really? Or just opinions, in most cases, supported by the few facts that are available that were, in turn, used to form the opinions. People are not allowed to state their opinion in an open forum?
3) That such a highly regarded and experienced captain would make the decision to go to sea into such a large storm when it seems to many people, including some in the Tall Ship Community, that there was safety available in staying in one of the numerous ports that were available baffles people and is what keeps this incident under such discussion (in my opinion).
