Previous injuries did not involve anyone being thrown overboard.

I don't know what the "norm" is but the Sea Safari guys I have seen operating up here blat about and then stop in good places for people to get photos - whether it is wildlife, "geology" or historic ruins. That makes sense to me - when moving everyone is paying attention and holding on but when there is something worth shooting they some to rest which gets you a better picture and a safer way of doing it. Obviously you'd expect that to be explained in the briefing.
Fair point but discretion should be used when conditions are obviously favourable.
as for the injured 55yr old with previous back injuries, the helm should have noticed her suffering fatigue and repositioned sooner.
I agree taking pics at rest would get the best results, but potting along at 10knt in fair conditions is hardly dangerous, and the helm should give fair warning upon exceleration.
