Re: Would you take a Gemini on the Caribbean1500
As with any given ocean passage, you will hear stories of shear horror and stories of pure ease. Mother nature is like that. Ironically, I believe with any organized trip like the C1500, you actually have less control over which you will get. The organizers decide when you will launch and they have done so in tough conditions. I'm not saying they made the wrong call, only that many ocean passages are done in tough conditions, while attempting to avoid worse. You have the right not to go, if conditions aren't good enough, but after you've paid your fee and spent the week prepping, briefing and attending the pre-launch party, its much less likely you would volunteer to hang back. You need a boat that can accommodate your own decision making.
