Different yachts handle differently, some designs run into severe limits in bad weather that can irremediably compromise their safety and the life of those on board, and conditions are never twice the same. In many cases, should you decide to tackle some of the oceans and areas featured here, take your vessel where it shouldn't be or make a wrong call, you will die and probably never be found. What you decide to do is your entire responsibility. It is your freedom too. Take great care of it.
