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....

Digital Photography & Video one BYTE at a time !
