Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Yes he said that and the third mate explained in his testimony what he meant by it as he was with him the two times he did it in 2008, He also said he never headed for an oncomming huirricane until Sandy.

Many of the ocean racers like to follow the backside of the low pressure systems following them as part of their stratagies.
