Yes- the drogue was attached as per the article. That time unfortunately was not the first time were in near hurricane/ hurricane force winds
and had the JSD out. We had it out for over 30 hours.
The drogue’s bridle when attached to the cleats falls between the mizzen backstays.
If I were to run the bridle outside of the backstays I was worried that I would lose the SSB antenna.

How did you have the drogue attached when you had that experience? I'm trying to envision how the mizzen shrouds would be involved.
