Plan Now for Wear Your Life Jacket at Work Day: May 17

We encourage all boaters to participate in Wear Your Life Jacket at Work Day on May 17, 2024, the day before National Safe Boating Week. No matter where boaters are working, they can join in the fun by wearing their life jacket and posting creative pictures on social media for a chance to win a prize. This is a great way to encourage others to boat responsibly. Learn more.

Save the date! Have your life jacket ready.
