Well one notorious story is mine, the book just came out Jan 15 by best selling author Michael Tougias / Simon & Schuster: "A Storm Too Soon". You can find a lot of data on my website starting with my final log at www.artseaprovence.com
I was in the early stage of my third Atlantic crossing
when we encountered un-forecasted post-named ST Storm Andrea.
We clocked over 85knot winds, the USCG C-130 that miraculously found us followed by a heroic HH-60 crew measured and engaged their rescue
in 80' waves when our just serviced GPIRB not only failed after an hour and twenty minutes but with its serial
number cloned was of no use.
An extraordinary series of miracles linked by thin threads enabled the impossible.
I have posted lessons learned on my website. I consider the story critical reading for anyone venturing offshore
, notably on the Eastern Seaboard in proximity to the Gulf Stream
