Williamson turn
A man overboard rescue turn is a sailing maneuver usually implemented immediately when it is learned that there is a man overboard. To maneuver closer to the person's location, implementations of the principles described are: the quick turn (also known as the Q-turn or the figure eight turn), the Anderson turn, the Williamson turn, and the Scharnow turn.

Gary's Nautical Information: SHIP HANDLING (WILLIAMSON TURNS)
Williamson turnSThe path that a ship follows during a Williamson turn becomes even more predictable if the variables of the maneuver are eliminated. For example, instead of stating that the ship should be steadied up after she has reached a course that is 60 to 65 degrees from the ship's original course, it is preferable to state that the helm should be shifted at some predetermined point and left in that position while the ship checks up and then swings to the reciprocal of her original course.

Gary's Nautical Information: WILLIAMSON TURN ( MOB )
The Williamson turn is a maneuver used to bring a ship or boat under power back to a point it previously passed through, 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.

LETS PRACTICE THE WILLIAMSON TURN.. !! | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
The Williamson turn is a maneuver 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. It was named for John Williamson, USNR, who used it in 1943. However, according to Uncommon Carriers by John McPhee, the maneuver was originally called the "Butakov pipe" and was used in the Russo-Japanese War as a way of keeping guns at the same distance from an enemy. 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. For other situations, an Anderson turn (Quickest method) or a Scharnow turn might be more appropriate. The choice of which method will in large part depend on the prevailing wind and weather conditions. 1.Put the rudder over full. 2.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 full to starboard). 3.After deviating from the original course by about 60 degrees, shift the rudder full to the opposite side. 4.When heading about 20 degrees short of the reciprocal, put the rudder amidships so that vessel will turn onto the reciprocal course. 5.Bring the vessel upwind of the person, stop the vessel in the water with the person along-side, well forward of the propellers LOCATION : Ernakulam Boat Jetty.
