Re: French sailor falls overboard during potty break

Proves that even the best of us can and will make dumb mistakes because we become callous about the dangers around us when sailing. after leaving your boat slip, clip into your safety systems.

There is a certain amount of humour in the situation. I'm glad she's alright and could call her mom when she had an accident while peeing!

Re: French sailor falls overboard during potty break

That reminds me of a famous solo sailor lost at sea log entry, of source I cannot remember:

<date> Going to the stern to take a pee. Hope I come back hahahaha.

Re: French sailor falls overboard during potty break

Coast Guard says that 80-90% of men they pull out of the water have their flies open.
