What We Were Avoiding

Here’s a photo of a boat that pulled in here the other day who didn’t get south fast enough to miss that tropical depression we were racing to stay well in front of.  We understand they experienced 65 knot gusts.  Torn sail, engine knocked out and the boat is soaked down below.  Yup, we’re glad we avoided that.

It looks like the jib was partially furled when it blew. It's been like this a couple days so I guess the halyard is also jammed.
