I was very close to her at the time. Since she was learning to trapeze and I was not helming I was already watching her and holding her around her waist. I was able to push the dogbone down and push her up before she hit the water. She sails and competes in Opti fleet so she is used to being on the water and capsizing etc. She was actually comfortable throughout the incident but got a little nervous when she realized we're stuck in the middle of the sea without a coach/safety boat around...

Now that I think about it, I remember seeing the trampoline at about 30 to 45 degree angle sb to port so we must have had our legs etc in the water as the sb hull got submerged under us. It was all over so quickly but one remembers it as if it was on slow motion.

Anyways, It was one experience that I really do not wish to repeat again. Especially not with my kids onboard.!
