Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

It was definitely based in fact - the running-out-of-water wasn't going to happen tomorrow, but it was certain to happen if we didn't move faster.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

I'll look for good stuff, but honestly it's not very dramatic, since I didn't usually have the energy to shoot when there was drama going on. I wish I'd thought to put on the head-mount during one of...

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Shadowraiths, what you cite is mutiny verbiage (rockDAWG does like his verbiage) and reaction (pushing Jane away after she tried to get HIS satphone from me; tapping Harry on the nose a bit after the...

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

"Jane" was obsessed with the idea we could win something, even when it was completely obvious we were dead last and getting laster.

Her ace in the hole was her mother, who, at 86, was the oldest...

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Um, no we didn't. We considered it because all our lives were in danger. But they ended up finally realizing that we did need to use autohelm, and did it themselves. No threats were involved. (Please...

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Also, please actually read my posts to find out whether I am a "first time spinnaker flyer." Sheesh. WTF.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

I really don't understand the reason for the tone of your post, whoever you are. I don't know what kind of history you and RD have, but please don't direct that **** at me.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Totally agreed. RD and I did try to helm all night, but each time, the owner insisted on taking over, often around 4am - after which would wipe out exactly as you describe.

RD and I both always...

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

I think "Harry" saw rockdawg and me flying it competently and felt he could too—and was far too macho to admit that he needed it taken down.

And even after it sank in that we needed to use...

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Perhaps to accommodate our class of "racer," the Transpac NOR defined penalties as below. (Only the bolded part is completely relevant here.) It is effectively saying that violation of most of the...

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Very good question. Several other potential crew members did see the obvious, and walked away in the weeks before the race (there were at least 3 of these). They, however, had the good fortune of...

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Hi Coquina,



Yes, we did talk to plenty of experienced people before leaving—no one who knew these owners well, but plenty who knew the conditions of the race, and one (the sailmaker) who knew...

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Hi everyone. I'm the "Jake" in rockDAWG's narrative. Just wanted to say for now that it's really, really nice to see such an outpouring of interest in this. It gives me hope that this nasty story can...
