A new category of disaster at sea: Covid distress.

Pretty sure SOLAS covers emergency entry when running out of water, food, etc. so maybe he was just distressed about not being able to have a beer at the White Horse in St Georges?

Even for a devout worshipper at the Church of Beer, it would a bit extreme to abandon your boat just because of a postponed pint.

I reckon that there must have been something deeper and darker going on in his head.  Poor divil.

I buzzed through it on mute, but gleaned that he was waived off by Bermuda and told to stand by, with bad weather setting in.

What isn't apparent is whether this was this past June, or June 2020.  If June 2020, then it would have been understandable that Bermuda wouldn't let him in. However, they have been letting in other US boaters during the past couple of months.

Or maybe it's this:  No vaccination?  Notice that he is on deck with the ships' crew, and they are all wearing masks while talking with him. He is not.  Covid scoffer?
