Nothing like looking up at a wall of water to loosen your bowels and empty your stomach. Damn

I find it soothing to be in such a cradle when nature sings me so soft lullabies!

Been in few storms in the sea but with much much smaller vessels.. It is awesome to be between waves, you can see nothing but water much much higher than you...

The worst was with 6.66m sailboat built for speed, we did our speedrecord with only 2/3 of headsail, no main sail. That was some scary shit, even the emergency boats were coming to shore and they are built to go to the worst storms imaginable. All turns had to be made at the top of the wave and there was not room for error, if we would've been even once sideways, that would be the end of our three men crew (only two of us could operate, the third was paralyzed with fear, almost causing a major disaster when he suddenly froze at the bow as he tried to lower the headsail as it was about to be ripped apart..)

21m/s constant and going well above 30 in gusts.. i Had to give counter balance and each time we hit the bottom of the wave i was submerged, hanging on the line outside the boat (sorry, it's was long time ago and i don't really know the correct terms in english..) And of course our motor shut off in the middle of it all, it was the only thing keeping us straight, i can tell that it was quite a fast fix to get it going.

Luckily the boat was made for racing so even if we would've capsized, it would still float merrily. And we hit a rock when going for a harbour, the waves were so high that we hit underwater rock that normally would've been well under our keel, we lost about 60cmx20cm piece from the keel but luckily hull stayed intact. We were literally standing on that rock for few seconds before waves picked us up again.
