Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

My first ocean race was a little uncomfortable. The skipper/owner and his son were ALWAYS going at it. Very tense. I saw it at the beginning during my test sail with them and knew what I was getting into. But I wanted the experience, so I gutted it out...even though it was the 3 of us on the same shift day in and day out. The other 3 crew got to sleep through most of the crap.

Of course, this was only 3 days of racing and 3 days of return...not 2 freakin' weeks. Ouch.

All that to say, I can understand Rock's initial decision. Sometimes you just want to go. And I respect his restraint when it all went off the rails. It's not your boat.

RDawg - sorry I encouraged you to miss the deposition, dude. Heh-heh.

PS - I guess I'm most interested in the CG's response to this...that is try to deescalate the situation. It's an interesting role the CG is thrust into in a situation like this. What should they do?

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

I think someone should reach out to Harry to get his side of the story. And, as stated previous, my guess is that he gets the boat delivered back to Marina Del Rey.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Ask any police officer what is the most dangerous situation they are faced with and most will tell you it's the domestic dispute call. Emotions running high, people get totally irrational. That makes them unpredictable. Rational people becoming irrational and unpredictable, committing unimaginable, even to them, acts of violence. And there you have your average run of the mill domestic violence murder.

That's what was going on here. Irrational and unpredicable behavior. Only this time on a small boat a 1000 miles from shore. So who ya gonna call? The CG is the only authority to call in this situation. And, IMO, the CG should have responded more strongly.

The fortunate thing here is that no one was injured or worse. But,again, as any LEO will tell you, that line was very frayed. Easily, this story could have had a very different, and tragic outcome

Im with ya. I thought the whole story very believable until he came out with the sushi bar owners making alfredo sauce. Come on? We;re supposed to believe that?
