Essential for a fun filled outing on the water is a boat equipped with all the necessary equipment operating properly. Join us at Watch Hill Marina this Saturday, June 23rd for a FREE Vessel Safety check with the U.S. Coast Guard volunteer Vessel Examiner team starting about 10 A.M. Vessel Safety Check Vision — Safe, Fun & Responsible Recreational Boating.
“The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Vessel Safety Check (VSC) is free and voluntary for owners of recreational vessels. The VSC helps to achieve compliance with federal, state and local recreational boating safety laws, particularly regarding the carriage of safety equipment. It heightens the boaters’ awareness of safety issues through one-on-one contact with a U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary certified vessel examiner.” For more info click here and here.
Stay tuned for the About Boating Safely course to be held over a few weeknights at the Whalehouse Point restaurant at Watch Hill this July (we’ll provide free hourly docking for course-takers as space permits).
