I still haven’t been able to bring myself to put down all my thoughts about this day. Its been well over a month and although I personally had a blast on the water that day (inspite of the truly exhausting leg to end the day), the events of the day raise many questions about knowing one’s own limits, trusting other to know their’s, leadership decisions, group decisions, safety and survival. It wasn’t a life or death kind of scenario, but the stakes were pretty high. Stranded on Plum Island and the inevitable arrest to follow, or a rescue at sea were both dangerously close to being immediate options. Here are a few images of the calm before the storm that simply don’t begin to convey the sequences of the day.
