Masks in the outdoors in Issues & Politics Posted Wednesday at 04:04 PM 23 minutes ago, InquisitiveScouter said: We do not do masks in any aquatic activity. You go in the water with one on, and your breathing is immediately impaired. Not a good idea, IMHO. We only wear them on land or on a boat where you can't social distance. On a the boats that you can't social distance there is a keel, so you aren't going in the water. You are wearing a PFD at all times, so you pop out of the water pretty quick in the very small chance you enter the water. When you are sailing a Sunfish or Laser, you are alone and social distanced: you don't wear a mask.
