    I can't believe SSA and the sailors keep saying it wasn't expected! Rubbish.

    I thought the forecast was spot on.Planned my day around it and was home when it hit as expected. It was a mistake to be out in a Laser with that coming. Or do cold fronts move slow around these parts? It is Mid December!

    That front was known to be coming for days! No excuses SSA. Maybe someone will give you a VHF for Christmas so you can listen to the weather bulletins.

    So Chris Bailet made a bunch of mistakes. First was leaving without a weather window! You better have 3 day window before leaving the East Coast in winter and hope you get half that! 2nd is not having a sea anchor! should come standard with that kind of boat! 3rd no plan to shore up the windows? They will break at some point offshore! Bad design for offshore work. 4th Running the engines with all the broken mast gear in the water. So now there is a 55' yacht floating around with no lights waiting for someone to come along and hit it! Maybe sinking or killing someone. Should CB be held liable if that happens? He is "The Professional Captain". Now did they sail it out of the environment? How much Fuel,Gas,oil etc is going to pollute the environment? Vestas did better CB seems like he doesn't give a rats ass about anything. Maybe a desk job for him will be safer for everyone. 200 miles and you destroy a yacht like that! I'll give it this... The design is flawed for offshore work.

    So did the warranty expire at 200 miles offshore.

    It's all fiction writing. I call bullshit on the whole story. 200 miles and you do all that to the boat? Bullshit!

    "Everything was chill, wind variable for a while, then coming in gradually from the SW and building through the night. We took our first reef before nightfall and had a great sail all night long under 1st reef and solent in 15-20 TWS, running down waves to 18-20 knots of boatspeed, heading around 100-120 to keep the wind on our starboard hip. The boat felt great and balanced. Brian had brought a bunch of serious fishing gear aboard, and we’d nailed a monster yellowfin tuna in the stream – I mention that because we were all feeling quite lucky to be cruising so calmly at 18-20 knots that night while eating fish tacos that had been swimming a few hour earlier." Must have had one hell-of a weight on the fishing gear to get it in the water at those speeds
