Re: Historical Sailing HELP needed!
I think you need to furnish more facts, in order to get a good answer. Where is the ship located when the storm approaches (how close to land), what direction is it going, where is it bound for, where is it coming from, how severe is the storm? ( Is it a run-of-the-mill storm at sea, or is it a survival storm? Is it a hurricane? Storm sailing tactics depend on the nature and severity of the storm, the ship's ability (or inability) to sail to windward, the amount of sea room available, and other factors.
