Vices and Habits

This particular article is not one I wish to present, but is quite important.  One aspect of our club is that of education...this includes safety at sea.  Education happens to fall under the auspices of the Vice-Commodore.  I'll be honest, I didn't think to much about it until this article was sent to me by one of our Past Commodores.

We have all chosen to participate in a sport that has inherent dangers...one of those dangers is drowning.  Can you recognize a person who is drowning?

OF COURSE YOU CAN!  TELEVISION HAS TAUGHT US TO DO SO!  

NOT!!!!!!

Please read the following two articles on drowning.  This is something we all should know!
