Re: Do you wear a life jacket?

Here are some statistics:
Accident Statistics
the most current year is this file:
http://www.uscgboating.org/assets/1/...g/Page/705.PDF

Page 7 has what seems to be the relevant data. Note that sailboats didn't even make the Top 5 chart.

Even with all this data, the incidents are not normalized for degree of use in the various conditions cited. Thus the difference between information and data.
