Cold Water Training

18 Feb 2010, 1700, Air Temp 38 Degrees, Water Temp 35 Degrees

Most mariners are well practiced in donning survival suits- it is a required shipboard drill.  And most mariners have at some point in their career put one on and jumped into a nice warm swimming pool.  But the day you really need that survival suit to save your life will not be like a drill, and water will certainly not be like a swimming pool.  What to expect when you jump into 35 degree water?  Will a survival suit really keep you warm?  Only one way to find out!  The verdict?  Yes.  The word from our midshipmen is that experiencing how survival gear can work in the elements it was designed for gives them a whole new respect for the equipment made to save their lives.
