    Re: Safety CT.River Run

    I think part of the problem is we don't think it can happen to "us". It happens in a blink of an eye and unfortunatly it can be tragic. Especially in a group of boats.

    Even in "fun runs", someone should be in charge, and anyone refusing to wear at least a lanyard should be asked to leave.

    We encourage all to wear vests , you're right it should be no big deal .
    Two thumbs up to all who helped in the rescue !!
    That's what I am starting to gather.

    Amazing though!

    Usually something like that happens, word spreads very quickly....

    I have done the run in the past. Really enjoyed myself as well.

    But it is a day where people are just at an unofficial meet to go boating together. This way, everyone is responsible for themselves...

    I just hope in the future that people take life vests more seriously...

    Had no one been there to pluck them out in time, they could have ended up dead....
