"I'm on my way to dinner but will point out that you now have two eye witnesses that dispute your web site. I too have been sailing the Virgins for many decades and I was there and know what I saw." InTheDish
My intention was not to embarrass you, but rather to give things a different perspective other than that which you and SV Entropia have claimed. However, when one has accumulated many sea miles, he/she has an instinctive sense of what certain wind
conditions will produce in definitive wave heights. 15-25 mph winds in the open ocean will never produce 11' or 20-foot seas. The math and reality don't jive. However, when you have not been at sea for thousands of hours in those conditions, it is easy to miscalculate what the ACTUAL conditions are when in the soup. The lesson here is that it is very difficult to estimate wave heights and when in doubt, consider the wisdom of the Beaufort
Scale as a ground source which is based on billions of statistics of wave heights and then factor in real sea miles in those conditions. I hope you take these remarks in a positive light and understand that there is no mal-intent on my part, but rather an attempt to get closer to the truth for those who are beginning their journeys on the open ocean and need to be realistic about their proposed itineraries. Good luck and safe sailing.
