I would nomarlly avoid answering this question but since EVERYONE asks I might as well have a go at crafting a civilsed answer.

I use a couple of techniques; "bucket and chuck-it" and off the transom. I think "bucket and chuck-it" is probably fairly self-explanatory but it carries the risk of the bucket tipping over where it shouldn't. It's probably the safer rough weather option. The other option is to go off the transom (the rear of the boat) which is pretty easy to do since the traveller forms a reasonable (but not comfortable) seat. The trick here is avoiding the rudders and the tangled web of string that holds the solar panels in place.

My hats off to the ladies who obviously do it a lot tougher than the guys!
