MOB doing 20 knots in 30 knots + recovery

Just found this, in which the crew of a Pacer 27 doing almost 20 knots with an asymmetric in 30 knots of wind off Cape Town rescue their skipper, who went overboard in a broach. I was duly impressed.

Wow!

5 sailors, I saw only 1 PFD on, no harnesses, and skipper in the water for 10 minutes...

Good thing the crew likes the skipper enough to find him...

They were lucky they didn't flood it as well with that hatch open.

Text over video states that all crew wearing life jackets. If you look closely you can see the PFDs under the crews jackets.

The captions mention they all had life jackets; I'm guessing except for the fellow with the bright Type I, their pfds were either underneath their jackets or integrated into them.

Yeah, I wonder what the full story was. I'm sure the confusion following the broach delayed the recovery procedure and they might not have been able to see him right away. Plus the need to switch out the spinnaker for a jib and make way upwind.

You have any idea how far away you get from and MOB at 18 knots its over 30' per second

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

I doubt they were making that speed after their broach and dousing the chute.... but yeah, you still put some boat lengths between you pretty quick.

In fact, the MOB procedure we were taught in my sailing lessons started off by reaching 20 boat lengths before turning around.

The practices I have seen with thebest results are where you turn the boat around now, like right now and then get sail/motor going. The idea is to minimize the seperation. Yeras ago in Long Beach they used to run some seamansip races where an observer(from another crew) threw a weighted dummy over the side whilethe chute was up without any warning. This was some very good practical experience.

I'm sure they weren't in a hurry. He was probably thrown overboard directly into a liferaft.

All kidding aside... great video!
