AD­VICE: DON’T GO OVER­BOARD

Cruising World - - Underway - Nor­man Martin Har­wich, Mass­a­chu­setts

Good re­port about the dif­fi­cul­ties of re-board­ing a man over­board (“Prac­tice Makes Per­fect. Some­times.” Ed­i­tor’s Log, May 2018). I’ve been teach­ing sail­ing to adults since 1985, and made the point a mil­lion times that get­ting back aboard is the real chal­lenge, so don’t fall over the side in the first place. I hope your ed­i­to­rial stirs some in­ter­est in the sub­ject and we see re-board­ing de­vices be­ing of­fered to yacht out­fit­ters. Seems like a pretty big gap in yacht equip­ment.
