You may be able to sail or motor back to a casualty in the water, but could you get them back onboard? (Amazing how heavy you are when in the water!)
This course uses a training mannikin to demonstrate various methods of recovering a casualty back onto the boat effectively whilst minimising the risk of anyone else going overboard in the process.
When Hamble Lifeboat are available, we will run a training exercise with them – this is a great opportunity to run through a man overboard scenario. Great radio communication and understanding what to do in an emergency.
