When talking about Yachting safely, most of the people think of avoiding storms or wearing a life jacket. It's “safe” to say, that even most of the experienced boaters have been hurt or injured on the boat at least ones in their lifetime. Why? Because it's just easy to get hurt on a vessel. Think about it, it's like navigating inside and outside of a moving car...a lot of things can go wrong. So, are there any precautions one can take to stay safe?
Here are my top 5 safety tips...
1. one hand on the boat, ALWAYS!
2. no running or jumping
3. avoid long skirts, tall shoes and wedges
4. watch out for open hatches (windows)
5. move slowly up and down the stairs, and watch out for wet slippery spots
Oh yeah, the most important one: Captain is always right! :-)
