Been discussed already on morganscloud but behind a paywall. Oceancraft had changed to spiced eyes by then anyway from memory.Aye. Interesting she finally confirmed that her Jordan Series Drogue - the subject of much informed and uninformed speculation both here and in other boaty forums - snapped where a double figure-of-eight knot had been tied in the leader section, introducing a significant weakness. Not part of Don Jordan's original spec.
There was also the question of the drogue's specification ( rope strength ) being related to the builders' empty weight of the boat, and not the actual laden weight......
Taking those significant factors together, the failure is less of a surprise than at first hearing.

Offshore Sailing // #296: Susie Goodall // Surviving the Golden Globe Race
Several commented on the AAC site in the days following Susie's 'event', with photos of her JSD kit being rolled out on a pontoon prior to departure for SD'O. The culprit 'double figure-of-eight' was visible there/then and received comment/discussion.... but it was only recently that Susie confirmed publicly that's where the rig broke.Been discussed already on morganscloud but behind a paywall. Oceancraft had changed to spiced eyes by then anyway from memory. Think the thing is with JSD et al, the only real extreme tests happen in the likes of the southern ocean and so it's an extremely small sample size to flag up any potential design improvements. Some girl Susie though!!!
Any links for either of those? Doesn't sound familiar, but would be interesting to have a look at.SG remains reluctant to suggest any inadequacy in what was carried and used. Many of the 'extremely small sample size' of real users - but not all - have revised their ideas of what's 'strong enough'.
Doesn't sound very clever working out yourself " what's 'strong enough" though. ...
The Don Jordan sizing calcs already come up with massive loads for the attachment points to cope with a once in a lifetime wave, if you can pick up the boat just from the bridle & give it a good shake then it's probably not far out
