Re: Beam Reach Safe sailing Rough Weather

To me it's simple: big, breaking seas on the beam are death.

Their experience is based on a very different boat than most folks would sail. All long distance sailors should read the real Bible called
Heavy Weather Sailing by K. Adlard Coles. Its based on many sailors' experiences. Somewhat dated, but the tactics are eternal. Its a "what to do if out sailing in a hurricane" book.
If you ever get to sail the English Channel in a storm, and live, you will appreciate this book. 60 knot winds, 30-40 foot seas that are steep walled and frequent, rain thick enough you can not see nor your radar able to tell you much, and every seventh wave breaking. Good book.
