Safe Boating Week

National Safe Boating Week

National Safe Boating Week is scheduled each year in the first full week before Memorial Day weekend.

This is a national campaign held each year at the beginning of the boating season to educate and remind new and experienced boaters of the safety factors they should be aware of.

Much emphasis is placed on the proper fit and use of Life Jackets, especially in locations where they are required for youths.


For the squadrons of the United Stated Power Squadtrons, it is usually a weekend to be available to perform Vessel Safety Checks.

Displays of safety information and members to explain teh content are provided at various marina and launch ramp locations.

Meriden Squadron usually sets up at hays Haven Marina in Chester CT. (See the Meriden Calendar for information.)
