Re: Do you wear a life jacket?

I noticed sailing the BVI's this winter that no one wore life jackets down there and was surprized by that. But then the water is warm and I can swim in salt water better, so got a bit lazy and didn't wear one much (plus the PFD's that came with the boat sucked).

Back on the cold waters of Lake Ontario, my inflatable is on from the moment we hit the dock and if the water is lumpy, my tether is close at hand and used if I need to go on deck.

I have heard that a lot of accidents happen when leaving or arriving at a dock - perhaps the most important time to have it on!

I am not really from Toronto
