"I hopped up into the cockpit and glanced aft. There, looking for all the world like a small, injured whale, was our dinghy dragging upside down behind us. She must have broached to a breaking wave and been rolled over - something that had never happened before. Now the tow was forcing her bow down, creating an enormous drag which, like a sea anchor, slowed SPARROW to a crawl in spite of the straining headsail. My immediate verbal response to this predicament would never survive an editor's censorship."
