Extra Caution with New Boaters

A new guy in our sailing group ran his borrowed DN into open water last Monday. He had been thouroughly cautioned regarding "the east side of the lake". This particular lake has a problem freezing at the east end.
In spite of all the warnings he sailed away from the group over to the dreaded east end.
Moral of the story?
Keep an eye on new people and reckless new people.
Fortunately the air temp was 50F and the water was only waist deep.
One more comment:
I had left the rescue line in my truck. Had to sail back to get it.

Safe sailing to all, especially this weird/warm winter.
