Life jackets are required for everyone when they are near the water and on boats. Sailors and program participants are supervised closely by instructors and staff members who are all First Aid/CPR certified. While on the water, sailors are accompanied by an instructor who is either on the boat with them or on a safety boat close by. We have an additional safety motorboat on the dock, with supervisory staff ready to assist if needed. All of our staff carry VHF radios for fast communication with each other and the office.
