@fsant653 As you weren't there you just wouldn't know what happened. You
can be as offensive as you like but until you've experienced 110kts in a
sailing boat keep you ignorant mouth shut and you're equally ignorant
thoughts to yourself. (As the saying goes "It's better to let them think
your stupid than to open your mouth and prove them right").

Author Andy Mullen (3 years)
@BooBooNZ You're right about this bloke talking shit. I've spent 30 years
sailing profesionally & like you I've been out in some frightening weather.
But I wouldn't imagine that the wind speed was gusting to more than 60 kts.
Didn't check. I was too busy staying alive.

You are talking shit. if you were in that much breeze you must have been on
a cruise ship or similar.... We had a solid 40-45kts in that video, I have
been thru my share of storms and never seen anything above 65kts at sea.
this is on a 50fter.

Author fredster8 (4 years)
Im 16 quite alot of sailing experience, had 32.8 knots when we where going
from cardiff to santander luckily it was an easterly but im with the author
here, most boats anemometers dont record more than 65knots, and theres
always time to use a video camera to help explain your experience visually.

well bo*locks to all you wank*rs who have nothing better to do than to put

how to sail a boat like it was designed to do!!! Just wish I was there for
this video, You know ya really sailing when you dip your boom!

Author fishin1111 (4 years)
yes, I agree with you also. Even though you explained yourself as 16 years
old, it seems like you've had enough experience to help contend this
persons experience(s) on this day...using the video camera, even if only 20
or so brief seconds, can make a huge difference to an insurance company if
there were any damages to the vessel as a result. Or, to even help better
explain things to the coast guard if needed. You are a very wise young

Author biscayforce12 (2 years)
@DisruptiveMoose I'm obviously RIGHT mate. How would you know. You weren't
there. Why don't you read the other comments I've made. Just cos you don't
get out much doesn't make you any authority at all. You need to have been
there to have known what happened. I know 110kts is a lot of wind. But when
your on a 77ft yacht that was built and rigged to take on the Southern
Ocean then running in 110kts is hairy but survivable. I Know. I survived.
Along with the other 13 crew members. As did the boat.

@biscayforce12 So, also with Robin Knox-Johnson, then. That's a mighty
