Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Thank you I will check out Blackburn. Please give the full name and around the time of his feats. When a captian sets out for lets say a big sail? I am trying to get some feed back here. If it is like the Kiwis above or Shakelton, the 8 millon $ capsize in the SAN FRAN bay or even the HMS Bounty?? When is it a fool and when is it a BFS. Shakelton had no choice or did he? It would be like us setting off to Mars. The cup racers have a lot of data and are cutting edge. I am not sure The HMS Bounty is related. I pick her fate because it seems so easy to call less than wize. What steps make it a calculated risk and what makes it less? I do not expect a one size fits all, just some thoughts. I have my own thought. I think a bad day out on the water is better that a good day at work. Regards, Lou
