Project Description

On February 23, 2014, Jerry Silverman made a significant contribution toward our goal of making NSYC the safest yacht club on the water. He showed various types of safety equipment available to the recreational boating community and discussed how each may be used to optimal advantage.

Jerry led a discussion based on personal experiences aboard a range of cruising and racing yachts spanning almost fifty years and many miles of ocean. Based on this background, he shared his extensive knowledge about how sailors can successfully master a multitude of onboard situations. He combined his knowledge of equipment with this wealth of experience to offer you and your crew valuable insight into how we can be as prepared as possible for difficulty on board.
