Re: French yachtsman rescued from the Torres Strait
What a stupid idea.
this man should be charged with negligent endagernment og rescue personell. What the hell did he think would happen and who signed off on letting this guy try a solo trip in a freaking dinghy. What a moronic fool. I hope hes made to pay every cent for his rescue the idiot.
Oh, don't worry, he won't.
You forget: he's arrived safely in 'The Country That Doesn't Turn Back The Boats'. It's more likely he'll be given free food and medical care and a pat on the back for being such a good and clever feller.
