You are sailing solo across the Atlantic ocean when your yacht hits a submerged object. You are taking on water and sinking rapidly. What do you do first?

Answer Get the life raft and survival kit ready for deployment.

Waiting until the last minute to figure out how to deploy your life raft, and locating your survival kit to accompany you in the raft is not a smart move. Get it ready to go and then attend to distress calls to any other vessels within range. You might get lucky and get rescued immediately.
