safetyteach is on a distinguished road
I have been over that day many times in my head trying to figure out if I could have done something different and every time it boils down to the trips preperation. In my experience an accident is rarely one major event but has always been a serious of small seemingly unimportant events that snowball together and turn into a tradgedy.
As far as that moment I just can not think of anything I could have done different other than turning back when the sea was obviously to much for a small vessle.
My only hope is that others will read this and take an honest loook at their safety set up in their own cockpit. Normaly I would rather a story of triumph and victory about myself, lol.
