Re: Do you wear a life jacket?

Life jackets are for water. You should stay on board and make sure you stay o board as long as the boat is floating. If you are in the drink, what ever the conditions the possibility of death is very high. Stay on board. Make sure you are connected to a very strong point on the boat which will not let you fall to sea. Any type of connection which allows you to fall to sea coneected to the boat is fatal.

Use your pfd (it should be a life vest) in case your boat is sinking.
