Change the rules on Helmets in the Canadian Sea Cadet sailing program

Helmets are getting unnecessarily mandated to wear for all cadets sailing. 

Some reasons why helmets are not a good idea:

Helmets do not prevent concussions. 

Helmets create a larger target for the boom. 

Not CSA approved. 

Risk of hanging due to straps. 

Affects confidence. 

Advanced sailors with Cansail 3 or above should not need a helmet while sailing. 

Solution- A good solution would be to create a waiver to send to participants in sailing activities in cadets and have a parent/guardian sign the waiver granting permission to have their child not wear a helmet.
