I'd think that climbing the rig, even in a bosun's chair, with even an inflatable PFD on would be less than comfortable.
I would be curious to know how he managed to fall from the rigging. If he was in a bosun's chair, falling out of one is rather difficult. If he was in a climbing harness, falling off is pretty difficult too. IF he was using a safety line as well as a chair or harness, I don't see falling off as being possible except intentionally.

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.
