In our objective opinion, you made it very clear to each vessel what their objective for each day should be to avoid the severest impact of this storm, and you clearly described the conditions they should expect to face. You also expressed clear warnings to vessels who expressed an intention that you felt could prove problematic about conditions that might overwhelm their vessels if they proceeded with those intentions. We also feel that it was quite generous of you to hold the special 0900 broadcast on Friday, November 11, particularly for Triple Stars, Elle, and Boonatsa, which we listened in to as well. In scheduling that, you were obviously being sensitive and empathetic to the duress expressed by the skipper's wife on Triple Stars, given their diminished sail plan. You were being quite generous in dedicating your time during this significant event. It's sad that the "calendar" set for a rally can override the common sense called for on the sailors' part.
