Re: A Cabo Rico owners accountin this weeks 'Nor Easter
...more details on their trip..
"We departed from Tampa shipping channel, destination was Panama City Beach until we lost the engine. I then decided to make a 50 mile tack to Carabelle Florida. We hove too two nights and lost 24 or more hours toward our destination."
"We were flying a loose footed trisail which was to much sail for 60 knots sustained winds. The 100 cubic foot storm jib seemed to be a little much as well. Hard to tell though, the rudder placement and sheet adjustment is imparrative. The storm anchor was the first I've used, i honestly believe it saved my life 2 nights ago. We had 400 foot of line and the fiorintino 9 foot canopy. It keep the bow head to wind but did tack the bow back and forth a bit. I was conformable motion below the entire time."
