Re: Foul wx gear + harness

I have an inflatable PFD with D rings for a harness, and always felt very secure with it..... until I read about the sailboat "Wingnut", thatcapsized in a storm during the Chicago to Mac. race, kiliing the captain and a crew member. Now I have second thoughts, especially with an automatic inflating PFD.
