THE Y / YACHTING HANDBOOK – YACHT CHAPTER PAG. 174 If we have a look to the actual situation in our industry and all the injuries and accidents, unfortunately on many occasions fatal, we can see where the Achilles heel is. If you are in the sea, you must be aware that possible emergencies may arise. There are a few questions that you must know the right answer to in order to set a basic level of safety on board your yacht: Every emergency is a situation in which you have no control over, and eventually it can stem from a lack of preparation. In fact fear of failure, anxiety and confusion can generate chaos and paralyze the victim’s rescue procedures.
