Re: Do you wear a life jacket?

Let's see.
Laser sailing: always wear a Type 2. Gotta have one on board anyway and there's really no place to stow one.
Big boat... Depends on the weather and the number of crew. Sometimes. And sometimes I just wear a harness and clip on.
Singlehanding my CS Merlin I ALWAYS wear my inflatable/harness and usually clip in if it's rough.
Just got back from from Doublehanding to Bermuda. Very benign passage and when both of us were on deck during the day we didn't always wear a PFD or clip in w/ a harness.
At night however, that was a rule that was strictly observed.
