In this episode we will take a deep dive into the actions the crew performed to save their own lives. It will be clear that the Safety at Sea courses, Race Regulations and safety preparation made a major difference in rescuing this crew during the race. World Sailing provides Offshore Special Regulations, the standards of safety These standards are based on lessons learned form incidents and are written by the foremost sailing safety experts in the world. We encourage every sailor to take the Safety at Sea in the water training. Each Country has a sailing organizing authority which can be found in the world sailing page. Look it up and sign up for a class. Once you have the certificate, make sure that you let your insurance company know as you will most likely receive a discount. The certificate lasts for five years so the cost savings on the insurance pays for the training. Lastly, please understand that the painter line for the lift raft does not work very well on a winch. This is important to understand because the sea anchor, in combination to the can apply working like a sail, may make it difficult to reel in the raft. As you pay out the painter in the raft, take up the slack to keep the raft close.
