Life Jackets and the Law this is for all SO CAL SERIES. For a boat less than 16 feet long, or a canoe or a kayak of any length, you are required to:  Everyone on board a personal watercraft and anyone being towed behind a vessel must wear a Coast Guard-approved life jacket.  Don't Push it we know you know this even if your opti-parent does not.. you could ruin the event for the rest of us.  No Baltic, No Buoyancy Aids..get a clue this is old and tired as my green fleet sails.

The USODA is 100% behind this regardless of other regatta behavior,  goal is to promote fair sailing and good values to include following the laws of the United States of America.  Feel free to move to Europe the doors open out!
