Ready, Set, Wear It! Life Jacket World Record Day

On May 20, 2017, Cal Sailing Club members will gather with boating safety educators, marine enforcement officials, politicians, media, and the general public across North America and throughout the world to try to beat the 2015 world record of 10,917 life jackets worn and inflatable life jackets inflated. Ready, Set, Wear It! Life Jacket World Record Day aims to raise public awareness of the importance of life jacket wear and general boating safety practices.

Please join us starting from 10am: wear a life jacket, take a picture and help us break the record! A Cal Sailing Club volunteer will help with questions about the value of life jackets and collect your picture.

The event will officially launch National Safe Boating Week, which occurs from May 20 – 26 this year. This timing positions the campaign just before the Memorial Day weekend, the “unofficial start of summer” when in the upper states the water is dangerously cold and throughout America, historically, many boating incidents occur.

Ready, Set, Wear It! events, including inflatable life jacket demonstrations make for great TV and photo opportunities, but it is just the beginning of the North American Safe Boating Campaign message. The purpose of the event and the yearlong campaign is to raise public awareness of the importance of life jacket wear and general boating safety practices. The event is coordinated by the National Safe Boating Council (NSBC) in partnership with the Canadian Safe Boating Council (CSBC) along with their respective members and affiliated organizations.
