SV Quantum Leap – given up, but sailed to Honolulu

It has been during a delivery from SAN DIEGO California, to HAWAII, when skipper Philip Johnson and his crew experienced some electrical problems. Sea was getting rough and a wave hit the boat and skipper has been hit whilst working in the galley. He experienced serious inner bleeding. Decision has been made to rescue the crew and abandon the boat, due to the fact that the rest of the crew was totally unexperienced.
