Wear your lifejacket, dernit!

So in the past week, there have been 8 deaths due to drowning in Central Ontario.

All were people not wearing their life jackets.

One was just outside of the harbour where Iris is docked.

So why was my boat one of the few that had every crew member aboard wearing a lifejacket in the race the other day??

Wear it, don't stow it.  Everyone who drowned had a life jacket nearby, but none of them had it on.  If you get knocked unconscious when you hit the water or the boat flips, it doesn't matter how close by it is.

Your Public Service Announcement for the day.
