Re: Man overboard drill
I prefer the quick stop.
Realistically, when shorthanded, we plan to pull the pin on the MOM, turn immediately into the wind, start the engine, put into idle forward and press AUTO, dump the jib sheet and main sheet, furl them both in and motor back. When you're the last person aboard the odds of tacking or jibing and then even coming close to steering and dumping sails, if you even get close to the victim, are slim.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
