I am happy the crew is safe and sound, and even happier that the coasties who rescued them made it home safe and sound from a "rescue" mission which should have never taken place. I am sorry but this "come rescue me" mentality has got to go. They made a decision on board to be airlifted, what about the lives they are risking to make that decision. Like I said I am glad everyone made it home safe but they obviously were not in any immediate danger and therefore had absolutely ZERO right to call in the coasties. Here is a good rule of thumb when it comes to sailing offshore, if you are not comfortable sailing offshore with absolutely no communication equipment, you do not belong offshore, PERIOD. I don't care if I sound like an asshole, I am speaking the truth. Call for help in serious(such as life threatening) medical emergencies, or from your liferaft, or from a desert island. Do not call for help because you are scared or uncomfortable.
