Updates to be added every two weeks

A new website which takes sailors through the Man Overboard procedure has been launched in conjunction with a safety at sea seminar held in New York. The tragic death of Hans Horrevoets, who was washed overboard off ABN Amro 2 during the Volvo Ocean Race, has recently underlined the need for speedy recovery procedures.

UK-Halsey and the US Merchant Marine Academy video-taped the seminar so that anyone can access it at www.ukhalsey.com which will have additional videos added every two weeks.

The sailors making the video improved their MOB times from six minutes to one minute 13 seconds, in one day.
