Wave height on Friday the 9th ranged between 1.2 and 1.7 meters at the sea buoy #44009 off of Delaware Bay.

Now, that buoy is reporting waves at 17-19' high.

Nasty, nasty :-(

TWO is always better than THREE . . . although NOT in more ways than ONE.

I wonder if he was using an autopilot and a gust caught him unaware and away from the helm. I have had some moments of concern while single-handing my Corsair. I need to use the autopilot while doing some of the line handling. If he was pushing things and flying a hull, one gust in combination with an unfriendly wave could ruin your whole day.

Given the reports of conditions that Btrayfors has come up with.... I don't see the boat getting overpowered all that easily....there just wasn't enough wind from what the buoys are reporting. 22 knots of wind isn't that much wind.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

dog,

Yeah, maybe. I don't know much about that corsair trimaran, though.

I assume he was headed north, since he reportedly left Cape May in the morning and was capsized aways up the coast. Wind was NNE. If the true wind was gusting, say, 25 knots that could be something over 30 knots across the deck. Shouldn't that -- combined with the reported 'very steep sea' -- be enough to give that little tri some difficulty?

Bill
