Life jackets

It is required that ALL sailors AT ALL TIMES wear an adequate personal flotation device (PFD – proper name for life jacket). This life jacket (PFD) needs to be a brightly colored, Coast Guard approved, Type III or better with no collar that can get caught on the boat rigging. Type V inflatable life jackets should NOT be used in this course. PFDs are sold by the child’s weight. Be sure to purchase the proper size! A whistle should be attached with a line to the life jacket and the child’s name should be written on the life jacket.

K-Mart, West Marine, Wal-Mart or dive shops are sources for these.
