Maneuvering and Man Overboards
Today we sailed from Marina Cay to Anegada. On the way we learned how to turn the boat around in a space no wider than two boat lengths when motoring. It’s called back and fill and it uses your prop tilt to help push you around. Then we practiced man overboards which was a lot of fun. Poor Bob the life jacket got tossed overboard 6 or 7 times as we learned two ways to quickly turn around (while sailing) to recover someone. Be careful coming in to Anegada. We ended up with less than two feet of water under our keel where we anchored for the night!
