I think it was more good luck than good judgement don't think you would control much with all that energy pulling and pushing in so many ways. A lot of energy in that sea.

I'm not so sure Billy. To me it looks like good timing (=good helming) and a decent sized engine, for a yacht!

Ian in all honesty I agree with you. I take my hat of to the skipper he certainly had guts and great skill. But I think the biggest positive was to have thrust at the ready.
Merry Xmas Ian and all the best for 2015

It did look good, but what other choice did he have. Staying out might have been worse !
