I do not understand why the right window has not the opening

It was explained to me by Amel's representative that the reason that
the right windshield doesn't open is to prevent the possibility that
any seawater could go down the companionway hatch. Considering this,
when underway it
does seem that one good wave over the bow with the right windshield
open could certainly go straight down the companionway hatch and in to
the cabin.
