Yeah, saw that mentioned somewhere, which is why I posted what happened to this guy. He's blaming everyone but himself, but no matter how sad it is (and I do feel pretty bad for him losing his boat - that is his home and everything he has in the world was/is on that boat ...) this could have easily been prevented

Things change.. sadly.
First sailing I'd ever done was in Antigua's Race Week; slept in the castle, under the stars on more than one night, when too drunk to make it back to the boat. ; ) Fortunately, some changes, are not to be regretted : )

Best regards,
