FOR YOUR INTEREST
The Williamson turn is a manoeuvre used to bring a ship or boat under power back to a point it previously passed through, often for the purpose of recovering a man overboard.
The Williamson turn is most appropriate at night or in reduced visibility, or if the point can be allowed to go (or already has gone) out of sight, but is still relatively near.
1. If in response to a man overboard, put the rudder toward the person (e.g., if the person fell over the starboard side, put the rudder over starboard
2. After deviating from the original course by about 60 degrees, shift the rudder full to the opposite
3. When heading about 20 degrees short of the reciprocal, put the rudder amidships so that vessel will turn onto the reciprocal
4. Bring the vessel upwind of the person, stop the vessel in the water with the person alongside, well forward of the propellers
If dealing with a man overboard, always bring the vessel upwind of the person. Stop the vessel in the water with the person well forward of the propellers.
