I sailed on a charter boat with skipper and mate once. First rule in the kitchen: at sea, when cooking anything, always have your foulies on (trousers). Seems like the IMOCAs should add boots to that idea, maybe even put on all the gear and wear gloves. Rosalin mentioned that even putting a spoon in your mouth can be a challenge at times.I watched various crew members on different boats prepare their "meals" with the boiling water into a bag process so when I read Boris had burned himself I was not totally surprised as the set ups seemed dicey and I one case, someone's entire meal flew out of her hands and onto another crew member; also this Is not the same boat Boris sailed on, alone, in the VG. That said, while accidents do obviously happen it would seem obvious that the potential risk should have been foreseen and avoid with better prep area.
It happens even to cruisers....Cooking related burn injuries are a major risk factor for evacuation in remote settings. It's surprising to learn there's not more attention paid to it on such sophisticated boats. Easy thing to improve on whatever is currently in place. I'd be interested to know if any changes are made before this leg.
OMG Laurent, are you going down to the level of cruising podcasts?It happens even to cruisers...
No problem, life is too short to keep focusing on this kind of stuff ;-)I was poking the bear there, a little bit, but happy to see it's a well humored bear.
Routing still 18 days something, so bring enough food.
