Man Over Board - What should you consider?
PART 1 - Preparation

This is the first in a three-part series of articles, looking at how to prepare for and deal with man overboard situations.
Losing a member of crew overboard is serious and every skipper's worst nightmare. Every crew should have plans and procedures in place to deal with such a situation.
Personal equipment to enable the crew member to remain afloat, equipment to help you make contact with the man over board (MOB), and a means of recovering the person from the water safely and quickly should all be considered.
Most importantly, once you have a plan in place, practice it - and then practice it again with someone else taking control!
Time is absolutely critical. And with that as our primary concern, we look at what you can do to ensure a successful recovery.
