Re: Learning from mistakes, ours and theirs.
I would appreciate suggestions and criticisms regarding our approach, starting with the choice of the route, timing, gear, and so forth. We knew some of our choices were not optimal, such as the timing, but it was very hard to change. Then there was the obvious lack of critical spares for various systems. Some day I hope to run this route again, hopefully on a better boat and with a better crew, without being forced to hurry.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
