You can never practice crew overboard recoveries too much! If a real crew overboard happens you want instinct and “muscle memory” to take over. Only practice will get you to that point. For a bit of extra practice try cleaning the bay. Next time you sail past a piece of trash floating in the bay, check for safety and conduct a crew overboard drill. Carrying a small net may help with some of the trash you find. Chances are you will never be at a loss for opportunities, and you will hone your and your crew’s skills, cleaning up the bay at the same time.
