Re: Safety: man overboard.
Hey Guys, have a good look at this report and investigation. Very well made and one that can be very useful if someone is on a similar situation. Lots of stupid errors made by what seem to be experienced sailors lead to the death of one of them.
Thanks! This is a very good report of what happened on the water. There has been even more fallout, as the regional body for testing (Pruefungsausschuss Rhein- Ruhr) has been accused of issuing boatinglicenses without instructions and testing, but for cash.
The head of the testingcommission already stepped down, and all instructors directly involved in this case were dismissed.
When 8 supposedly well trained crew are unable to hoist one man aboard then there is an issue with training.
I am afraid that this event may turn into a nasty problem for Salona, due to the issue with the boarding ladder. Luckily for Salona, this did not happen in the USA.
