    Vodka and Ambien use by a crew member

    I think I may have still been in HS or just graduated around 67, but it was a MORC series of races starting with Miami to Bimini...the owner of the 24' also my summer job boss was drinking heavy the night of the race (evening start)..after arriving in Bimini, me and another crew member my age refused to race the next leg ,which was to West End. Finally we agreed not to race but accompany the fleet. Just as we turned into the narrow rock lined channel leading to the harbor under OB power. The owner goes into seizure all we could do was let him flop around on the cockpit floor until we cleared the rock jetties. He was a very dark complected guy to begin with as he was Capt with a sailboat rental, well he was about as black as a Caucasian could be....he slowly came out of it about the time we had a little room to maneuver...we skipped the last leg from West End to Lauderdale a flew home... do not know if it was epilepsy or alcohol withdrawal ...a very emotional time for two HS kids to humiliate the owner in Bimini then have to deal with that scene in West End
