Quick Safety Reminder - NYS Lifejacket Regulation Kicks In Soon.

Fall must be here, I broke out the drysuit for sailing on Sunday. With a Sunday morning forecast involving winds gusting to 20, I figured I might as well suit up for multiple dunkings. Never actually swam, although I was on the verge more than once, but just getting the drysuit out reminded me that the start of the NYS small-craft lifejackets-required period is right around the corner!

Seems worth posting a reminder here: If you venture out in any pleasure craft of under 21 feet in New York State, you must wear Coast Guard-approved personal flotation devices while on lakes, the ocean or other waterways from November 1st through May 1st.
