Re: North Atlantic Rescue

That was a well written article. Thanks for sharing that. It brings some reality of what could happen out there.

Aside from what it teaches you, there is simply the indescribable degree of peace that can be achieved on a sailing vessel at sea. I guess a combination of hard work and the seemingly infinite expanse of the sea - the profound solitude - that does it for me. - Billy Campbell

Well, not if you're paying attention to what you're doing, anyway... :-)

That's a very dangerous attitude, that falling overboard "at any time" can be something that simply HAPPENS to you... In anything less than to most extreme situations, the overwhelming percentage of MOB situations were entirely Preventable, and I suspect the number that were the result of gear/equipment failure are extremely rare...

Anyone who fails to appreciate that, will be a danger to themselves and those they sail with, and should perhaps think twice about venturing out upon open waters... :-)

Our obsession with the notion that safety can be 'bought' never ceases to amaze... Your most important bit of Safety Gear is that bit of grey matter that resides between your ears, and it's absolutely shocking to me, how many folks I see out there are not even remotely close to mastering the art of moving about their boats safely, or confidently - and likely never will...
