And the crew could not execute an MOB procedure?

I teach 4 different methods; two under sail (upwind and downwind), two under power (Anderson turn and Williamson turn) at the competent crew level.

I always wear an inflatable pfd underway.

Life jackets are no guarantee of survival, although they greatly inhance it. I wonder why more people don't use jack-lines/harnesses when at sea during unsettled weather? My back is still sore from "coding" a drowning victim in Lake St. Clair (little more than a duck pond) who was wearing her jacket ,allbeit poorly.

Nope no lifejacket, just go overboard with a cooler.

BTW have you tried to swim in a lifejacket?
