Safety Day 2014 Saturday, May 3rd 10am – 2pm
We hope as many members as possible will seize this opportunity to get their boats shipshape and compliant in time for Sailpast and the coming season.
We are pleased to announce that the Canadian Coast Guard will bring their Zodiac fast response inshore lifeboat; the crew will be on hand to describe the work of CCG and answer your questions. So bring your children and grandchildren to visit the boat and learn more about safety afloat.
The palette of activities is basically the same as last year:
– Courtesy checks by the Power and Sail Squadron, based on a checklist of the mandatory safety requirements set out in the Safe Boating Guide. Owners whose boats meet the requirements will be issued with a compliance decal. Click here for Safety Checklist – first come first serve basis – no need to book.
– D’n’A Fire Doctors will be on hand to check, service and recharge fire extinguishers.
– West Vancouver Fire Department are having a fire extinguisher use demonstration at 11am.
– Expired flares may be left at the clubhouse for disposal.
– Thunderbird Marine Supplies- will have a stand to advertise their goods – special discounts on safety items – just take the flyer over Thunderbird Marine and Penny will sort you out.
