*In the time it takes you to read this information, sudden cardiac arrest will have claimed another victim. Statistics show that more than 200,000 Americans die of sudden cardiac arrest every year. If someone suffers cardiac arrest while boating, critical time can be lost getting medical aid to the victim. Every family (or crew) should have a member trained in CPR and the use of an AED.
7:40 Points of Sail and Sail Trim by Captain Annette Cook
A Tell Tail's Tale
By: Annette Cook
Twirling tell tails tell a tale;
Trim sails toward the ones that play
Or simply sail the boat away.
Hanging tell tails fell asleep;
Turn the boat back to the wind
Or ease the sails to wake again.
Speaking tell tails tell a tale;
Ignore them and the boat goes slow
Or pay attention and fast you'll go.
8:30 Taut Line Hitch and/or Practice with the AED
