We have had many sailors ask us about our COB prevention method on Voyageur 10.10. It is quite difficult to describe accurately, so me made this video. We did it at the dock because of the difficulty to film it properly while underway.
The most important design feature of our system is that you cannot go overboard and impact the water, even if you tried.
Many people head out on their boats with a false sense of security. Their jackline/tether system will keep them attached

As an Advanced Sailing Instructor, I have run Basic, Intermediate and Advanced sailing courses in the Great Lakes, the Caribbean and the British Isles. I can never predict how “challenging” or “interesting” these may be. Each of my crews has never had the exact same experience as the crew before. The Intermediate and Advanced Level cruising course prepares you for more than the theory and practice of points of sail, docking and undocking and navigating from point A to point B
