Re: Storm tactics

Peter Forbes

Hi Brian,

I bought and carried a sea anchor parachute (to be launched from the cockpit but streams just off dead ahead) full kit unused thankfully.

After I had bought it I became certain that I had got it wrong and I should have bought a Jordan Drogue which lots of Americans have.  I think a Jordan drogue (lots of small parachutes) is easier to launch and to recover at the end. I did a lot of research.

Just my small input.

Best wishes in your decision.

Hello all,

What are your thoughts on using a para-anchor or storm rated sea anchor type setup?
