Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

May’s Safe Boating Week (May 17-23) received a big boost towards breaking the world record for the most people wearing life jackets when District-3, the Long Island Chapter of the United States Power Squadrons, suited up for Letter to editorsafety.

Nine squadrons joined the National Safe Boating Campaign for this annual life jacket record event. Most squadrons followed their event with demonstrations on the use of inflatable life jackets, flares, and fire extinguishers. Vessel examiners provided free safety checks for boat owners — these checks may save lives for recreational boaters by making them aware of previously unknown problems.
