I have lots of spinnaker experience, and was the one who showed "Harry" how to set up the chute. He never actually got it, though, and rockDAWG and I were the ones who had to set it up each time "Harry" fouled it.

There was actually nothing difficult about flying the chute at night, even when the wind picked up, and even during the little squalls we encountered.

Ooops, my bad... Thanks for that correction, my apologies to Jake...

Could be a sign, that it might be time to quit posting to this one... :-)

LOL! Well, I must confess, I'm still having trouble wrapping my brain around the notion that someone who has sailed both to the Arctic, and below 60 degrees South, would not have immediately sized up AQUARIUS as a boat one would most definitely NOT want to be aboard for a 2,000+ NM passage :-)

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

5 more after this one! Come on 1,000!

I think we need to send the RD+Jake team on the "really old guy sails to the South Pole and might die" trip and see how that goes.

Actually Aquarius looks like a comfortable way to sail a relaxing 2,000 miles and AFAIK the boat had no issues. The CREW would have chased me off in 20 seconds though!

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Of course, the boat itself wasn't really the problem, though it wouldn't have been my first choice, and the provisioning definitely had issues. The skipper, crew, and their management were a whole another matter. Someone could conceivably be a technically competent sailor, but somehow not have had enough experience with unstable, dangerous, or insufferable personalities to recognize their signs in time... or could be too focused on achieving a voyage to listen to warnings.
