I don't believe Ian Farrier recomends the F31 be sailed offshore but people do. Not too much of a surprise that it got away. Glad the fellow is safe.

Anyone hear anything about Bob Pollak being pulled off of his 37' CSY during the same storm by a USCG chopper? Bob said he lost his rudder. His boat was apparently last sighted about 250 miles off of Nova Scotia.

One thing about the buoy reports is that there can be vastly different wave conditons depending upon location. For Example the buoy off of the Columbia River Bar is in 60 meters of water (296') The channel is 14 meters (45') when you read the waves at the buoy I don't believe they represent the wave height in the channel.

Fair Winds,


Between us there was, as I have already said somewhere, the bond of the sea. Besides holding our hearts together through long periods of separation, it had the effect of making us tolerant of each other's yarns -- and even convictions. Heart of Darkness
