Man overboard

Create a notification for "Catamaran"

Fortunately, technology can come to the rescue, by sounding an alarm, and helping you find and recover the man overboard. Sea-Tags is an innovative system which quite simply connects to one or several smart phones, via a free app. In the case of submersion or distancing of a transmitter, the signal is cut off, and the telephones automatically set off an alarm, as well as recording the GPS position at the time of the incident. The positions of the man overboard and the catamaran are then displayed on the application’s chart, and the distance and course to follow to recover the crew member who has fallen in the water are continually updated.

For singlehanded sailing, the telephone can also alert contacts which have been pre-recorded in the app, by text message.
