Hobie Wave Capsize Scoop Recovery

Here is how to do a Hobie Wave (for any catamaran really) capsize scoop recovery. The goal is to scoop the crew into the boat while one is righting the boat. This allows one to get on board with little effort then if needed they can assist the one in the still in the water onto the boat.

Basically what you do is one sailor does the capsize recovery as noted. The one being scooped simply lightly hangs onto the trampoline hiking straps, so has not to created extra resistance for the sailor righting the boat. As the boat starts coming over to an upright position the one being scooped kicks as the boat comes over, making sure they are on the boat. Pretty simple process. This process of course can be applied to righting a monohull.
