re life jacket - Pah! the water is only two feet deep and the shore is ten feet away. you worry too much

and the boat sails and tracks better than it should

but my tacks seem slower on film than in my imagination

Yea verily to DW's "pah" .

CG ... would you really wear a PFD and/or attach a tether in those conditions ? Quite honestly I am astounded at the idea. OK so if you had a youngster on board you'd take care of that but an adult ? I'm afraid my way of doing things is to prepare for the conditions at hand.
