when we are sailing we each have a harness that fits with our pfd
and has on it
This may sound like a lot of equipment
but I can assure it fits very comfortably. In the event one of us goes over board we can let people know where we are call them give them our position and signal them. We both wear a floatation suit with built in 150n Life Jacket. We have tested the system in as much as I went in the water
with a guard boat and waited 15 mins before I contacted our yacht to let my wife know that I was over board (yes I know she would all ready know as I am not asking fora cuppa) then giver her my position she then headed back to me . On seeing the mast
I called to give her final instructions to arrive at my position. It worked and I was recovered in safety
. In the event that I was on watch on my own then the EPIRB
would be used.
