Sailing, History, Environment
So much for a captain not abandoning ship. In the 30 foot waves and wind close to 120 if they were west and south of the eye, they really blew it on navigation. Of course one of the big drawbacks of an old sailing ship is that they move poorly and only about 45 degrees to the wind at most. But this should have allowed them to travel south, but the dry winds surrounding the windward side of the storm (east side) were too much, too strong. They might just be able to save it if it stays floating… hope so, argghh.
