“Boat Safety Day” is a celebration in recognition of National Safe Boating Week, May 16-23, 2015 throughout Canada. Port Dover Power & Sail Squadron, Norfolk’s boating safety experts and educators, will be having a free public event for boaters, or those interested in boating, to ensure everyone is safe on the water this coming season. Included in this informative day, Port Dover Power & Sail Squadron will be available to answer any questions related to boating safety, safety equipment, courses, licensing requirements, etc.
The day will also include:
- Recreational Vessel Courtesy Checks (RVCC) free of charge to ensure that boaters have the required safety equipment to avoid hefty fines this season.
- Flare Disposal: If boaters have outdated or expired distress flares then we will collect them and ensure that they are disposed of properly.
- OPP Marine Unit will have officers present to answer any questions as well as get up close and personal with one of their patrol boats.
- Annaleise Carr, marathon swimmer and advocate for Camp Trillium will be part of the day to share her inspiring story and explain how the Port Dover Power & Sail Squadron has been essential in her on-the-water safety during her Lake Erie swims.
