Until we hear more from survivors it is hard to know just what the HMS Bounty Captain, Robin Walbridge, was thinking when he sailed his vessel and crew into the teeth of Hurricane Sandy.
And, of course, Walbridge is missing and presumed dead, so we'll never hear directly from him. But via Sailing Anarchy comes this extended, and perplexing, interview with Walbridge, conducted in August. The discussion of bad weather and storms starts at 10:30. And the casual and naive attitude regarding hurricanes Walbridge diplays is either a misguided attempt to sound cool and crusty for an interview. Or it is a key insight into a mindset that led to disaster and loss of life. You can decide for yourself.
