Capsize recovery


Recommended Posts

Thick and fast - didn't have time to stick around yesterday to ask. Poor Darcy was in the start boat yelling instructions but I was just too far to hear clearly.

Boat went right over (they should mine that mud it must be good for something) and I did recover reasonably well.

So, I got the recovery rope and stood on the gunnels (underside) until the mast was visible, I then got onto the lower hull and continued to pull.

Where should my weight be? Right at the front? I'd uncleated the main (cause of the trip in the first place!) so once it came up it sat nicely and I got in at the front.

What's the best/fastest recovery?
