Really glad that CS is close to Sydney and not in the path of the two big Tropical Cyclones heading toward Australia...
Ditto on that. A tropical cyclone is not anything you want to be caught out in.
I have done one, and I don't want to do it again... It was on the Royal Viking Sun back in 1992 on a voyage from Australia to ... uhhhmmm... Reunion, that we were caught in Cyclone Celeste... It was a horrendous and very scary trip, and I remember seeing the stabilizer coming out of the water (and it's normally located 5,5 meters below the water line)... The whole forecastle was trashed.
