Man Overboard Procedures that we used on ILLUSION

Here are the MOB procedures that we evolved to use on ILLUSION over the 30+ years that we raced her.  Note that it is our 14th version so has had quite a bit of attention over the years.  Unusual aspects are that after we drop the spinnaker or headsail we sail right past the MOB to make sure that they have flotation before we sail some distance away and drop the main.  We recover the MOB with a mid-line-lift to eliminate the possibility that the bow blows over the MOB.
