When sailing you are very directly exposed to the forces of nature. Especially with our children as part of the crew, we naturally attach great importance to safety on board, not just with regard to the danger of falling into the water. Should it happen anyway, there is a rescue loop, a marker buoy and handheld searchlights in addition to the mandatory floating ring. There are automatic life jackets and harnesses for everyone on board to use. Safety lines can be deployed on both sides for the entire length of the ship. The children wear their life jackets as soon as we leave a marina. For adults, the usual rules for strong winds or night driving apply.
