Life Jacket Facts

Over 90% of people who drowned in recreational boating incidents were not wearing a lifejacket

Most people who drown never intended to be in the water

Many boaters who drown had considered themselves good swimmers

Most drowning happens unexpectedly when small boats capsize or someone falls overboard – leaving your lifejacket behind in the boat or event worse tucked under the bow.

YACHT CLUBS

The Wexford Wreck

The Wexford wreck is a 250-foot steam freighter, located 11-kilometres northwest of Grand Bend (GPS: 43° 24? 3.6? N, 81° 53? 17.9988? W). Bound for the Port of Goderich in November 1913, The Wexford was one of eight ships lost with all hands in the worst storm in the Great Lakes recorded history and dubbed the “White Hurricane”. In 2013, a copper wreath created by Goderich blacksmith James Wallace was affixed permanently to the shipwreck’s bow to commemorate 100 years since the tragedy.
