Over on Snowheads the Schumacher/helmet thread is starting to make WW11 look like a rugby match.
I dont wear a helmet when skiing and I realise this is a risk. I have worn a helmet on the water but only on a Jetski and TBH it was mostly to keep my head warm at 60mph+ in the winter.
I hope the wearing of helmets in all recreational pursuits remains voluntery, but I fear that interested parties (insurance companies ?) will eventually help to push through legislation that makes us wear protection on all boats, even rowing
