Crew Overboard certification (Aleta)

Location: Berkeley Marina
Description: We will focus on crew overboard certification for crew and second captain certification. We hope that those who are "all but certified" will volunteer for this sail so we can focus on that. Other certification will be possible but our primary goal is getting the many who are so close completed. We have devised an approach whereby the recovery team lifting the person from the water do not all cluster together as in our previous approach. For this reason we think practice will be safe for all who attend.
