More than 45,500 people around the world have participated in this fun and educational boating safety event since 2010. Boaters gather at family-friendly events around the world to inflate their own inflatable life jacket or to wear an inherently buoyant life jacket, helping to heighten awareness of boating safety issues and go for a world record along the way! Event participants will be tallied after each event, and events with the most participants will receive prizes.

Previously only one event during National Safe Boating Week, Ready, Set, Wear It is now offered four times throughout the summer to offer even more opportunities for grassroots support of the campaign.
