Suggested methods for dealing with small craft in a sheltered environment


Guiding principles l.jpg
Guiding principles

  • Count heads!

  • Ask if help is required, and if so, what.

  • Recover and return students to shore if the situation is becoming serious.

  • Leave the craft ‘tagged’ to let other crews know it has been dealt with.

  • Don’t become another casualty yourself .

Guiding principles

  • If students are in the water near to your boat, turn the engine off.

  • Even if they are not, consider turning the engine off.

  • Involve the casualties in their rescue.

  • Holding or raising the tip of the mast may be all that is required if sailors are tired.

  • Whilst dealing with a rescue, the rest of the fleet may be without cover. Remain alert for them.

  • In a training context ‘prevention is better than a cure’, therefore…..

  • Use a mast-head float.

  • Prevents inversion.

  • Doesn’t affect performance much.

  • In the case of entrapment, the priority is to bring the casualty to the surface.

  • Either lift the spinnaker pole, or the stern to create an air gap.

  • Resist cutting lines, the sails will be easier to manage if you don’t.

  • Use wire cutters as a last resort and only then on the trapeze system.

  • If it’s a standard ‘rescue’..

  • Get the spinnaker down first.

  • Ask the dinghy crew to do this.

  • If they can’t, ask them how and do it yourself.

  • Drop other sails if possible.

  • Roll jib if it has that system.

  • Put wing/rack over RIB sponson and ask crew to sit on it.

  • Remove dagger board.

  • Pass line around mast.

  • Consider ‘spring’ towline to take strain.
