Bavaria Yacht gets it wrong and so do the "rescuers"

This is a pretty scary video for several reasons:
http://vimeo.com/87355387

I'd start with not least the skipper trying to enter the harbour under these conditions, his actions after the inevitable happened (although he may have had injured on board and prioritized them) and then the powerboats' clueless repeated approaches downstream to casualties in the water.

Lots to learn about how not to do it!

Compelling viewing, just hope if I ever have to do a real MOB I'd make a better job of it.
First job this spring when the rib goes into the water will be drills, especially MOBs

Dangerous place, the sea, clearly not ideal conditions yet two sitting up the front and another on the coach roof, none with safety lines!!! Mad.

I think some of those in the water may have been injured; they didn't seem to want to swim for the yacht or the shore. Those waves were big and the knock down looked very frightening. It just goes to show how stable yachts are though; that one's point of vanishing stability must have been well over 90 degrees and was probably something like 120.

Should have had the headsail up and all crew inside the cockpit or down below. The helmsman was not in control when it mattered. Alan P
