Have you ever fired a flare gun, lighted a hand-held flare, used orange smoke signals, tossed a ring buoy to a person tossed overboard, or used a fire extinguisher to actually put out a fire? Gain “hands-on” experience at the Peace River Sail & Power Squadron’s Boating Safety Equipment Demonstration Day.
Whether you are new to boating or a seasoned veteran come participate at this free informative event on May 16. Activities will take place 10 am to 1 pm in the area between the Bayfront Center Building and the Punta Gorda Boat Club Building, 802 West Retta Esplanade at the corner of Berry Street. Bring your trailered boat for a courtesy Vessel Safety Check and view displays of required and recommended safety equipment for your boat.
The Boating Safety Equipment Demonstration is in conjunction with National Safe Boating Week, May 16-22, 2015.
