Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013
Almost every post in this thread make me happier that I neither race, nor sail with ANY of the knuckleheads who have posted here. It's pretty obvious that the entire line-up on that boat (Skipper, crew, and 86 y.o.) constituted its own "Perfect Storm" for a 2000+ nm passage; although I still think special attention has to be paid to the skipper's shortcomings. But I think we all need to take a deep breath and tone it down a notch (or three, or five). How about concentrating more on constructive criticism, rather than name-calling and chest-thumping?
Whatever happened to sailing as a nice relaxing pastime?
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
