Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) Safety Bulletin

For owners and operators of boats with retractable keels or retractable weighted centreboards.

Louise Keir 0 1755 Article rating: 5.0

At approximately 1220 on 12 June 2019, a RS Venture Connect sailing boat fully inverted, its crew comprised an assistant instructor and an experienced disabled crewman. The boat was knocked down in the windy conditions on the day and heeled to such an extent that the keel fully retracted. During the subsequent capsize, the disabled crewman became trapped under the inverted boat. The safety boat crew saw the accident and attended the scene quickly, but had difficulty righting the boat and so were unable to reach the crewman in sufficient time to effect a successful rescue.

It was found that the retractable keel restraining VelcroTM strap was not fitted, allowing the keel to move freely in its housing.
