So sailing with another person is going to lower the waves and slow the wind down so the boat doesn’t get slammed over and lose its mast? Doesn’t two people just up the rescue risks? I don’t see the logic.
Of course two people sailing won’t lower the waves or change the weather conditions. I tried to find an NPR archive interview from yesterday that explains the logic better than I can. When I find it, I’ll post the link. The person being interviewed had very specific reasons why the Coast Guard and others feel that solo sailing isn’t the best idea.
