What are SAMSuits?

The SAMSuit is a specially designed wet suit for sailors with disabilities. It is used to provide warmth, and it offers excellent protection from wind and moisture. The SAMSuit is generally laid out in the boat prior to transfer. It opens so that the volunteers can assist our sailors into a SAMSuit as the sailors are transferred onto the sailboats.
