The one thing I can say from what people have told me, the frontal systems passing along the east coast this year are stronger, more frequent and less predictable. There's not a lot of excuse for going singlehanded when you don't have much experience, but the only way to gain experience is to, well, get experience. We don't have much experience (4 years owning a boat and pretty much only sailing it on a lake, my only experience before that was racing on other people's boats, and my wife just learned a couple of years ago), but we're getting more experience each time we have a problem. I think this guy was a bit insane going out singlehanded on a 50 footer with little experience though...
