I LOVE how everyone points the finger at some OTHER idiot sailor - I'm sure none of the haters were ever new to sailing or made a mistake or found themselves in heavy weather
, etc... I think there's a saying, hmmmmmm, oh yeah - judge not lest ye be judged.
Anyone who needs rescue
should get it. I don't care how stupid or smart, rich or poor, well or poorly prepared they are. I don't care if they've been sailing for 30 years or 30 minutes, if they're in a mono or a cat or a kayak
or a bunch of bamboo rafted together with rope
. If someone needs help and others are capable of providing it, they should. Duh.
FML. Now where is that ignore button...
