Re: Golden Globe drogue use?

I am aware of the thread and it doesn't address the issue of the use of drogue in the GG specifically, it goes off on general discussion of drogues. We all can read that one person's drogue parted but I was hoping people here would be able to provide more info on the experiences with use of drogues in the GG

Robin Knox Johnston published his report on the storm tactics in the 2018 GGR and the link is on the GGR site. He goes into drogue use among the various contestants. Good read.
