A report's been published into the death of a yachtsman who was racing from the Isle of Wight to France during last June's Morgan Cup Race.
According to the document published by the Marine Accident Investigation Branch, the weather conditions had been "challenging" with winds gusting 25-30 knots and rough seas.
More than 100 boats were due to start the 95 mile Cowes to Cherbourg race, but around 30 had pulled out because of the poor weather conditions.
Christopher Reddish, 47, fell over board but remained tethered to the yacht.
He was pronounced dead by a consultant cardiologist who was among the crew.
The yacht was escorted to Portsmouth by Bembridge lifeboat.
The MAIB's called for the use of dummies during Man Overboard Training and the need to nominate a replacement for the skipper if they become incapacitated.
There are also calls for more training on the use of crew safety lines.
