The 2018 National Safe Boating Week is May 19-25. Kickstarting the week on Friday, May 18, is Wear Your Lifejacket to Work Day, when members of the public are encouraged to wear their life vests to the office to promote the simplest lifesaving strategy in boating.

Throughout the coming week, boating safety advocates across the U.S. and Canada are teaming up to promote safe and responsible boating. From family-friendly events at marinas to kayak safety clinics to free vessel safety checks, the week is packed with lifesaving messages about responsible boating.
