Hellosailor also makes few good points.
True, it doesn't mention whether the foul weather gear was the type with an integrated PFD or not.. if not, a PFD should have been worn.
A type IV PFD or LifeSling should have been thrown, or a MOB pole at least.
I wear my PFD, even in good weather, if I am sailing shorthanded, and require everyone on board to either stay below or wear a PFD if the wind picks up, even if it is stilll "nice" out.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
