Regards the CG, if you had a drysuit on and had come out of the boat when singlehanded but got back to the boat ok should you still inform them?
Whats the difference to falling out of the RIB and been ok and falling off a jetski and been ok?

We have now been issued with these flares: http://www.painswessex.com/ProductSp...Id=117&CatId=1 you can get a pouch that goes on the webbing of your lifejacket so the flares are with you all the time.

I don't think I would've either given your situation. As you had the other boat there, you had the stuation under control. Getting out of the wet gear quickly was the No.1 concern.

If you'd been out there as a solo boat? That would've been scary.

You did well to manage and bring it all back. Extras I carry include the small individual flares and even a personal EPIRB but I must say I dont always carry them I have them aboard but only carry them when travelling alone and then a handheld radio on the lifejacket. So if I cannot get back I have the reserve equipment to get expert help- alas we all hope it never happens to us
Ian,
Cheers, Although it was bloody cold i was fine and didn't feel threatened by the situation, my main concern was gf as she started to go quiet on me heading back in, i was constantly asking her if alright as i noticed uncharacteristic behaviour forming even though she repeatedly said she was ok.
What flares do you carry?

I have the normal safety kit, flares and thermal blankets, but choose to carry the small ones I listed above and also paid for an EPIRB which I carry in a pocket when running solo between ports, and the handheld clipped to lifejacket, I work on theory as better safe than sorry although I wear both manual and auto lifejackets depending on forecasts

If that occured on my boat, I'd be concerned too.

No I asked it as a genuine question rather than a hidden criticism. Dinghy sailors end up in the water quite alot (and not all of them wear dry/wet suits) so with another boat there for support your situation is not really any different. With a back up boat there the only obvious reason for calling them would be just in case a well meaning person on shore had seen it and called it in - but you would expect them to try to contact you/other boats in the area anyway.

I agree that's my automatic intention - but not everyone thinks it is. Since you would have been back on board and heading for home by the time you could make a call it no longer warrants a Mayday.

After today i will attach my hand held to LJ and probably buy some flares such as the ones divers carry on them.
OK so if you had a H/Held VHF on you would you:

(1) have used it immediately?
(2) have called your mate or called the CG (mayday/pan pan)?

Polwart,
In the same circumstances i wouldn't have called CG but would have tried to call mate if for some reason he was oblivious to the incident and carried on. If however i was out without an accompanying boat and was struggling to get back to my boat then i definitely would call CG.

It would appear so although I could claim that 'bot scary' was a measurement of fright.

Please tell mr gArfpig that I don't mind the people I like and respect calling me fat.The two of them know who they are .
