How long can you hold your breath?

STOPWATCH

Did you ever wonder how long you could hold your breath? Use the stop watch above and see how long you last and challenge your friends.

People need air.
We need air to breathe.

Whether on land or in a boat we don't think much about breathing. But if you fall overboard, suddenly breathing becomes very important! It's life-threatening if you are not wearing your life jacket. Even if you are an excellent swimmer, without a life jacket there's a good chance you will drown. So even if you can hold your breath for a really long time, you need a properly-fitted life jacket to stay afloat and breathing.
Boat smart from the start and ALWAYS wear your life jacket.

SUGGESTION:

Help a friend to know the feeling of boating safety. On land, let them try on your life jacket. Show them how it buckles and should fit. Sharing what you know is a true sign of friendship.
