      I am a lifeguard and every year you have to go for training. And everytime i have not the feeling i know what to do.
      But when real things happen, i go in to automatic mode and i had a fiew of does.

      @Tristan totally agree with you. Earning a living from basically sailing round with just about everything provided for you and treated like VIP's is not pure sailing like you say. But at the end of the day they always fully intended to make a fortune, and the adverts ensure that.

    Two MOB stories: #1; we lost a red 5 gallon fuel can over the side in a squall. We were 150 miles NE of the Bahamas. By the time we came about, we could not find the fuel can. #2; Whenever we are under way, if trash is seen in the water, we call an MOB drill and pick it up. It's a great way to practice.

    The reason why the air tag didn’t work is because air tags relies on nearby iPhones to transmit the air tags. Without a nearby iPhone, you’ll only see the last known location of the air tag (when it was last connected to an iPhone)

    AirTags ping their location based on nearby iPhone or iPads, in addition to last know location when connection to you own iPhone is lost. So unless you have like 10 other people in the water with an iPhone that has a network connection, the AirTag will be useless if the person starts drifting away.

    On my safety course we were taught to always wear tough sailing or gardening gloves when letting off a flare. They do regularly ‘backfire’ and can leave serious burn marks. We were shown some horrific burn photos. Always keep a spare pair of gloves in your flare pack.

    Kind of chilling knowing that when you're in a situation that you have to use your liferaft, you know you're in some really deep sh*t. Make sure your safety gear is all up to snuff. The Man Overboard drill made me think of the time Reilly bumped his head jumping into the water and how fast the boat was travelling. Scary.

    Ive been watching you guys for years, and so many of your episodes have been very beneficial to "educate" people of the reality of sailing life. But you guys really hit the nail on the head with this one. Absolutely fantastic and supremely educational. Crisis management is knowledge that we humans so frequently take for granted - even in everyday life, not just sailing. How to handle a crisis. EVERY sailor, and every crew member (no matter the age), should be well educated to these standards. All it takes in one single event, to realize how vastly important this information is. Well done you guys, well done!

    What a great and timely video, and a reminder to everyone you can never be too prepared when it comes to safety. Wether you’re a grizzled vet like these two legends or just learning the ropes like myself.
    After watching your videos for years I finally bought my first sail boat a month ago! I won’t be crossing any oceans anytime soon in my 16 foot day sailer but it’s the perfect boat for me to learn on and I’ve officially caught the itch and have been sailing basically any free time I have when the weather permits. I’m on a small freshwater lake in upstate NY.
    This past weekend I was single handed sailing on a beautiful afternoon where the forecast predicted winds at 7-8 knots when all of a sudden I found myself in gusts of 20 knots. The daredevil in me was pushing the boat to its absolute limits in these stronger winds on a close haul and I had the boat leaning hard and ripping across the lake, then all of a sudden the wind gusted just a little harder and I found myself overboard as the boat capsized! Adrenaline kicked in I collected myself and remember the training I had done on how to right it and got it back up right and myself in after a few minutes. Unfortunately the personal flotation device I was not wearing, but sitting on as a cushion fell overboard as well and drifted away from myself and the boat fast, so once I was back in I got to practice a MOB drill on that.
    Long story short keep doing what you’re doing and inspiring others to sail and follow their dreams and be safe out there!

    Absolutely you can not emphasize the importance of safety and preparedness enough. I often see people embark on dangerous matters without taking seriously the needed safety and education. Living in the Pacific Northwest. People take up kayaking on dangerous waters like they're playing in a kiddie pool. I've rescued someone that was in a near death experience and had NO idea how serious it was. All the sudden hypothermia was setting in and he was losing power and fortunately I got to him in time. He had NO safety equipment and was out in very unfavorable conditions. Thanks for highlighting this. Keep up the good work.

      @Timothy Busch yes, Puget Sound/ Salish Sea is 45-48°F year round. Inland the lakes on lower elevation can warm up nicely. But the Sound and mountain run off lakes are FREEZING! With proper wetsuit you get 30 mins. A dry suit maybe a couple hours. But definitely not long term.
      This guy was in cotton attire. 🤦‍♀️ Not even synthetic clothing. I was driving by the board walk along the shore and saw him out in the water. I was in a dress. The waves were high, big chop. I thought, what a moron! He was lined up parallel to the waves and taking on water in his boat. He got dumped over. Fortunately the waves pushed him to shore eventually. We stopped the car, I went running down the beach a half a mile from the access point to get to him... in a dress and boots. He washes ashore and thinks he is fine. And sits get his bearings and to talk to people. I quickly explained the situation and how we had minutes to get him situated. Strip off those wet clothes. He argued. STRIP! He did. Now grab that boat and let's get back up the beach. Pronto! I told him what was about to happen to him. We wrapped him in towels. He starts admitting he was very nauseous and had a bad headache. My husband went to the small coffee stand for hot water. I loaded up his boat and his gear, while giving him a stern lecture. He had no safety gear. Got a new PFD and spray skirt and didn't make sure they even worked together with the boat. They didn't. So he wasn't paying any attention and got turned around wrong and swamp. We followed him home about 2 miles away and instructed him what to do. I told him he was not to take any of his stuff out there until he had all the proper education. He felt silly and agreed. Crazy. So quickly something can go wrong.

    I have long had a tradition of jumping into the water with my PFD when it was time to change out the cartridge and hammer. But watching this post has made me realize that I am going to start doing the same thing with the life raft. Just to become acquainted with the deployment and handling of the thing. It will be just as fun, just as useful and a good chance to show others the features of such an important piece of equipment.

    Hey guys that really brings home how vulnerable we really are out at sea. We’re only coastal cruisers here in the UK. Every year I try to teach my wife how to rescue me should I go over board. Debbie can drive the boat in various familiar locations but is frightened of driving it really. We talk every year about her taking on a basic boat handling course but she avoids as best she can every year. One part that has made me realise my own weakness is learning the search patterns that my own boat systems has and I have never put in practice. Now I have watched this that is exactly what I am going to do next time I’m at the boat. Then I can write out an instructional notelet to keep on board. Phew. 😳 thanks guys.

    When you understand how the AirTag works, you can mount it to your drone or dingy and sail or fly away. After some small distance the AirTag knows only your own IPhone as provider of locations. To test it you recognize quickly that your own phones are not the right equipment. The Tester Must have your AppleID on the Phone far away.

    Think about adding a scuba "marker sausage" to your vest. Rolls up into the size of a fat egg roll. Inflates by mouth to form a 6" wide 4-6' tall pillar so the diver (or man overboard) can be more easily spotted from a distance. Some have Scotchlite on top so they reflect very brightly. Not expensive.

      @lxndrlbr I once tried every loud whistle on the market, and found that if are 100 yards downwind of someone, you can save your breath.

      That's such a simple and clever idea! And that pairs nicely as a visual aid to the whistle as a sound aid.
      Of course if the person overboard is unconscious, you can't rely on that.
      There are also color dyes to aid in aerial search. And of course all the electronic equipment they mentioned at the beginning of the video...

    What a superb episode…. I was always taught to crash stop/heave too before dropping any sails when doing MOB drills. Stop as close as you can then sort yourselves out to pick up the casualty..
    Ps - my daughter (9) says great show… she loved it!

    Great video, guys. Someone needed to address the "elephant on the boat" in a graphic manner.
    Perhaps the next similar video should be about the "do's and don'ts" of heavy weather sailing, and how to minimise the "don'ts" via good practical safety prep. It's referred to a lot but rarely are there video representations of the procedures, and I think that there is enough evidence that safety line attachments which tether the MOB to the vessel but don't prevent a dunking only expedite a tragic outcome rather than prevent it. Staying in the cockpit in heavy weather is great in principle but not necessarily realistic, especially when requiring sail area reduction with the onset of a squall storm of greater than anticipated intensity.

    I was real glad to see this episode posted. There should be a lot more safety awareness for disaster st sea or other emergencies. Would love to see more of that Info from la vagabond and other sailing channels. I spent several years in the navy and we drilled a lot with man overboard and general quarters for flooding and fire fighting training. Hope to maybe see you guys do videos about those things if you were so inclined. I know the procedure on a warship but no clue how you handle on a yacht.
    Thanks a lot for this episode. Love you guys and your show!
    Fair winds and following seas!

    Hey Guys, that was a really good video! Woah, Riley, you better read Steven Callahan's book, "Adrift: 76 Days Lost At Sea" before saying about the life raft, "This is really comfortable." And Mate, I'm with you, and Elayna too, when it comes to murky water. Sharks know when you can't see THEM!

    Wonderful video! first got into BTC back in 2016 and have been hodling/buying sats at different price points since. I've been through corrections before and will likely experience more over the future. Volatility is simply the price one needs to pay if they want to play. I don't have any Alts as I'm a bit of a BTC Maxi, but that said, if BTC hasn't died before, it surely won't do so now. Stick in there - yes we are all feeling the pain, but over the long run this will just be a blip. This is how I see past corrections when I felt that I got in at a high (back then I think it was less than $1000 and bouncing all over the place!). Now when I look back, all I see is regret for not having the courage in buying more at those times. But if you believe BTC has value, then by all means, buy these dips if you can afford to. For those who got in at 60 or 70K and feeling the crunch: hang in there. BTC is not a get rich quick scheme. Wait it out and you will see: you will come away stronger. I buy and just trade long term more than ever, I have made over 1.5` btc from day trading with Kevin Ortale Crypto in few weeks this is one of the best medium to backup your assets incase it goes bearish. Technical analysis is my second… You can reach MR Kevin on ͲeIєɠɾαm @Kevinortale

      My growing love for crypto caused me to explore until I came across Kevin Ortale (although I'm trying to avoid sensationalism) Kevin is by far the best. No hype for hype's sake, but great inspiration to trade Crypto.

      Bitcoin has been falling for a while now and it might keep falling or decide to rise again. The truth is no one knows, I believe it's the right time to make purchase and also get the assistant of a professional

    We are so close to you, just south on HHI. Inspired by your family, my sister, Mom and I are learning to sail, buying a boat, selling the house and most everything in it and sailing off with our German Shepherd, Severe Macaw and African Grey. We are absolute beginners to sailing and ESclips and have so much to learn. Thank you for all that you share!

    Cheers from Matthew (60yo for reference 🤓) in SoCal. The episode that stuck with me as rather frightening was when Riley jumped off the back of the boat and cracked his head on the platform thingy…. I said at the time, wholly “uckfay” 😳 … I thought are these love birds practicing man overboard? Is Elayna capable once she noticed no Riley onboard to search for him? Do they practice any of this stuff? Why is Riley jumping off a moving boat in the first place? I saw the trailing rope in water, assume it’s grab on and take a wee and pull yourself aboard? What if Riley was unconscious? Once Riley was okay, I wanted to scold everybody on that boat cause that could have been fatal… 🥰. Lenny and his bad reaction to something was the other “uckfay” moment for me…. Be safe, you guys are looking happy and healthy and funny as ever … 🥳🤘👍

      Agreed Maggie. Sincerely agreed! I hope this episode opens a lot of sailors eyes to the reality of safety, and being prepared in the event of a crisis. If this episode helps only one single person in distress, then it was well worth it. On the other hand, if a person or loved one is lost due to being lazy, cocky, or un-preparedness and not taking heed to this knowledge......well that would be tragically sad and mighty tough to deal with, wouldnt it? Enough said....

    The airtag relies on a nearby and newer iPhone to supply location. It's like a mesh network. So if you have one in your backpack and it's stolen, when your backpack passes a newer iPhone, it gets a location. If no iPhone, no location....and not too many iPhones in the middle of the ocean. It is not a substitute for proper marine emergency signaling. Cheers all!
