A Hylas 40 something in 18-20 knot winds has no other option but to use the motor and run out of fuel on an Atlantic crossing?

Remember that gentlemen do not sail to windward, Chris. I don't recall the bit about calling in the USN when that horrific circumstance arrives but it must be in there somewhere.

Shh! That Hylas is part of our Secret Civilian Sea Patrol to make sure no tall men in robes with dialysis machines clandetinely swim into the US on their camels.

The giveaway is that they "exhanged ships baseball caps". Come on, no civilian Hylas keeps a stock of SPARE SHIPS BASEBALL CAPS onboard.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hmm. They are on their way to Portugal. Maybe it is another Rainbow Warrior in the making. Look out Giu!

You gotta be kidding me. First its light winds, so they motor, then its moderate winds and they motor. If you don't want to beat, turn dummy! You're in the ocean, you've got a little bit of room to put the seas to quarter and ride out those enormous 18-20 knot puffs. Theres gotta be more to the story.

Yes I think if they were part of a secret patrol Giu should keep a weather eye on his bottom.

I wonder what the radio traffic was like:-

"Err, do you big grey guys have any diesel and fresh fruit?"

"Roger that, we came all the way to find you. Got any baseball caps to exchange?"
