Raquel decided to try the paddle board by herself.
We had three options to rescue her. Lift anchor and go with Pesto (quite an overshoot), put the dinghy down on the water to get her (too complicated), or send one of the adults overboard to swim for her, and paddle her back in (the most painful, but easiest of the three).
