Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Post Note:
Shortly I got home. I heard from the news that tropical storm Floosie is on its way to Hilo. I guess Jake and I save the boat and her owners.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

I browsed around the Web a bit and figured out which sushi restaurant "Harry" and "Jane" own. I've actually eaten there once, two or three years ago, and was completely under-whelmed. Really. I've had better sushi from the take-out counter at Whole Foods. "Harry" may own/run a sushi joint, but he ain't no sushi chef (as in an "itamae"). Somehow, this TransPac episode doesn't surprise me.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Holy smokes. Glad to hear its over and you're underway back home. What cliche makes most sense here? Learning experience? What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger?

At the least, there must be some inspiration for that tattoo you want.

Glad you're safe. Can't wait to see the vids.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Geez Rock! What an ordeal! Glad you and Jake are safe, and grandma too.

But I think you missed one factor in your navigating. Your greatest source of wind was coming from Harry. You could have won if you harnessed that.

Geeez, some good lessons here. Congratulations for getting back without hurting Harry. It's difficult to fathom what could possibly be going on in the mind of someone like this.

Yup, you've sure got that right...

Safety inspection a "joke"? Dave Cort of the Race Committee "hanging up on him" on the satphone, after his request to notify the CG?

Seriously?
