Good question. This is definately one that causes much heated debate among sailors. I have always said that if a man overboard rescue (the quick stop method) is performed properly, the victim will not be on either the leeward or windward side. Ideally the bow will be pointed directly into the wind enabling the boat to come to a complete stop next to the victim.
