Re: "Dove" crew missing
Interesting thread. Donít know the area at all but sounds like they be cruising in the wrong time of the year. Out here in Pacific Northwest you donít go ocean sailing in the winter months, it is just too brutal. I remember one December day in winter many years ago at Shilshole Bay Marina, a kid comes up to me, can I get a ride to the store? I said, depends on where you came from. Hawaii! Youíre on! He showed me their penciled path on a chart (no gps, phones back then), a number of big loops made when big storms hit and they had to run downwind. They had a stove fire and nearly lost it surfing down the front of a huge wave but fortunately the tires they were dragging caught hold....
