Sailing into a named storm is a pretty dumb idea. Trying to beat one across the Atlantic is also of questionable intelligence.

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.

He was "trying a shorter route to the Azores" (from Fairhaven, Ma) and thought he could run across the northern edge of a named storm (which was quite N of the Azores route)? And running E towards the most dangerous quadrant?

2nd guessing is always easy but I don't really understand anything except good thing for EPIRB.

Article said he's done ocean crossings before. Might not have been that bad if he hadn't been dismasted.

Okay, so here's a question. Say the dude deployed a Jordan Series Drogue as soon as he started to get in the really nasty bits, think he'd have been alright?

With multi-story size seas, no I don't.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

Personally, I think deploying a JSD would have been a better option than running into the most dangerous quadrant of the storm.

I was out in Cristobal 24 hours before it was declared a Tropical Storm, 18' seas, 38 knot winds off the coast of SC, and there is no way on God's blue earth I would have been anywhere but the helm at that point! I was motoring just off the wind, and couple of times had green water up to the dodger and over onto the bimini! With a 11'5" beam, it'd be way to easy to roll in those kind of waves.
