What is Critical Incident Stress?

Stress is a normal reaction that helps us function at our best. Sailors may, at times, be involved in incidents that put strain on their normal ability to cope. In any incident, the individual’s reaction to the event is what makes the event critical, not the size or type of incident. Even people not at the scene, such as race officials, boat owners, familty and friends may experience reactions if they have a close involvement with the issue or the participants.
