Here in OZ 'Quickstop' is the supposed Yachting Australia official method......My wife and I do both know it, and it is what I practice on our boat.

Having said that I have some concerns over it being used on boats with less experienced a panic stricken situation I can see how your crew could easily get confused with the first tack, unsheeting the jib and stalling the manoever.

One important point to make and the main point RYA make in teaching man overboard is to turn on the engine in keelboats.....
