Re: Do you wear a life jacket?

NOPE not ever. I do wear a harness when out of the cockpit in rough conditions.

I have considered wearing an inflateable with a PLB strapped to it and probably should do so in very rough conditions.

The sea temp where I sail is in the 80sf and I am a reasonably strong swimmer.

BTW Have you ever tried to swim in a lifejacket?
