    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Holy sh#t. So glad he's alive - there sounds like little reason for him to be. Not by any fault of his, mind.

    I read the earlier reports and find it a sad ending to a great adventure.I am relieved that the loss of the boat has not meant the loss of Howard too as that would have been much worse.I hope he recovers totally and quickly from the ordeal.

    Wow. Those crazy tales of rounding the Horn sound tame compared to what he was facing in what looks like a more sheltered route.

    What a story. I can't imagine . . .

    Glad Howard is okay. And can you believe it, if the boat is intact, he'll continue. Jeez...
