What is a PFD?

Forget PDAs, What About PFDs?

Many sailing clubs focus on the thrill of the ride, being surrounded by nature, maybe even catching some rays on the deck of your yacht. All of this is very romantic and could invite a few public displays of affection...but what's often missing from this scene?

PDFs - Personal Flotation Devices. Usually water skiers wear them all the time, however, if you and your fellow club members/crew opt not to wear them, be sure each person on the boat is assigned a PFD and knows where they have stowed it. Do regular maintenance checks on the stock of PFDs to ensure there are no rips, mildew or loose straps.
