A reminder to all crew and skippers, the SOAR is a PFD mandatory race. Every year the SI's specify this. Yachts can be dsq'd for failure to comply. RC need not (and does not) fly the PFD mandatory flag.

This is the SYC's commitment to safe boating (we do the same for the local series). Besides, there seems to be at least one POB every year.
