T34,

I was not referring back to your original post... merely making an observation. Looking back it looks like I was referring back to you and sorry about that. I know YOU know that... just wanted to make the point here.

CD- As stated in the other forum, it is in honor of G's heritage and the great Portuguese maritime history. (Heavy on the History part!)

Besides I can now that I have the "T" and not sailing my old boat!

I did the Safety At Sea seminar last March in Newport. I'd have to agree.. well worth doing, even if you're not going to participate in the Newport-Bermuda or Marion-Bermuda races. The static charge on a basket is something that most people never expect, but a helo generates a lot of static electricity with the rotor blades.

While prevention is really the best thing to do—having a good offshore-quality medical kit is something that will be needed if an accident does happen. There are things in a good off-shore kit that you don't see in a basic first aid kit, like SAM splints, skin staplers, etc... that may make a huge difference in the outcome.

The most serious injuries, according the the SAS material was head traumas, followed by bruises and lacerations, then heat/cold related problems.

Some things will not be treatable to any significant degree... a massive heart attack... nope... they're done... not much you can do about it... even if you have enough crew to do continuous CPR, depending on the type of heart attack and their condition. Lightning strike... nope...not much you can do, sea snake bite... nope.... pretty much alll done there too... but you have to at least have the gear to handle the stuff that isn't immediately fatal.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Portuguese...aren't they some of those johnny-come-lately salckers who didn't get around to sailing the seven seas until, ahem, five hundred years after the Norse had sacked and pillaged the entire known world (and parts of the New World) as well?

SD-
"The most serious injuries, according the the SAS material was head traumas" The USYRU (now USSA) and even the ORC have been debating helmets for racers and sailors for decades now. Apparently a small number are killed by booms and a larger number seriously injured by concussions, even when not racing. I'd hate to wear a helmet when sailing all the time...but they make a valid point, skulls rarely win against booms. Kinda like recreational snow skiing, helmets were unknown 30 years ago but they're being used voluntarily by some folks now. Not much you can do in terms of first aid for a good conk on the noggin.

I don't think it was the 7 seas so much as the 7 miles closest to shore!

Don't forget the polynesian islanders who were sailing across the pacific while the europeans were still living in caves. Ok...maybe they had gotten to tents and were nomads...
