With Drownproofing it is possible to survive almost indefinitely with minimal effort. You don't even need to know how to swim. Drownproofing is a water survival technique that was invented by Fred Lanoue, swimming coach at Georgia Institute of Technology from 1936 to 1964. Coach Lanoue believed that everyone should be able to survive in water and developed a simple technique that was easy to learn and did not depend on physical strength or intensive training. During his time at the Tech, Fred personally taught his method to 20,000 students. It's pretty much what it says on the tin, a simple site describing the technique, and the value of it.
