On the off-chance that anyone reading this has kids under 10 and isn't sure what to do:

Wearing of PFD's by all and sundry is obvious and a tether is a good idea if you can get them to wear one. The non-obvious one is that, if, heaven forbid, they do happen to fall overboard, a designated adult (usually their mother! ) has to be ready to instantly go in after them.

Normal MOB recovery procedures apply from there.
