They really should have got their weight aft, two guys were way too forward. You have to keep the stern down.

Also heaving-to with the MOB to leeward is a tactic I suggest everyone try.

I would have liked to see them assign one guy to looking only at the MOB. They were all looking towards him and then back into the boat to do whatever they needed to. Seems like too much likelihood of losing him between looks. Don't know these boats at all - did they really need to have a jib up to get back to him? The approach, even while luffing was still pretty fast.

I thought they handled it well. I remember being out for a sail on a pretty calm evening - 3 aboard a 26' racer. My "then" son forgot to clip the spinnaker turtle to the lifelines so it went over the side when we raised the chute. We dropped the chute and turned around but the turtle was never seen again. It was brightly coloured and about the same size as that which a person presents in the water as well. I seriously doubt it sank in the limited time available but we never saw a thing.

Watching the video though I questioned the 30 knots and building wind claimed - that water was a lot flatter than any 30 knots I've ever been in - that's the bottom of a gale and in the video it looked barely enough to rate a small craft warning. From what I saw it looked more like 15 - 20.

Outboard powered sportboat with the outboard stowed really limits you to being able to sail back

In are drills in Hungition harbor you gotta pretty much be ready to break something on the boat to stop ASAP UNDER Spinaker as at best it's going to be and ugly douse

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

I had my doubts as well but I suppose they could have been in the lee of the mountains on the cape. I always think that people over-report wind speeds in videos, which makes me think maybe it's my own judgement that's off.

I think people report max wind speeds, not average.

I agree with Jackdale. Hoisting a jib for MOB seems unnecessary and way too long. What if skipper was hurt or no pfd. Can't imagine the boat handles that poorly under main alone given they couldn't have been far away after the "e-brake" from the broach. Id think Heaving-to would have been better. Definitely has me thinking a few drills are in order this spring!

I feel like by the time they got the chute in and under control they would already have been blown quite a ways downwind from the skipper, and might not be able to heave-to- very well with just a reefed main anyway. It would be hard to throw a line upwind and they'd probably have to make way upwind one way or the other.
