Early in our fall training in Newport we participated in an exercise to improve the safety procedures in place to help sailors with mobility impairments. We worked alongside the organizers of the C. Thomas Clagget Jr. Memorial Regatta and US Sailings Education department to test and problem solve the techniques in regards to water rescue of sailors by support boats for regattas. There are many methods that work, some better than others. As a result of this exercise our fabulous sponsor MTI Adventurewear is now working in the development of features on PFD's that might aid in the water rescue of sailors.
