Heavy winds, yeah? And I noticed no boom vang, and only one set of reefs in the mainsail. Is he going to add a second set? And I hope he stores the liferaft down below so it doesn't get lifted.
I saw this story posted yesterday and knew it wasn't you guys:

"Firefighters rescued two people on a sailboat today after their motor stopped working and they started drifting south of Oahu.
"The boaters called for help about 4:30 p.m. when the motor on the 22-foot sailboat failed, said Honolulu fire Capt. Terry Seelig. He said they didn’t know how to operate the sails and couldn’t stop the boat from drifting."A fire rescue boat towed the vessel back to the Ala Wai Boat Harbor about 5:15 p.m. No one was hurt."

Some people.
Glad you all had a great day! Nice set of photos, from you and from Mel.

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
