Take care of the safety to enjoy the summer

Safe Boating Awareness week takes place each year in May to try to give all Canadian boaters the tools you need to truly enjoy the full boating season ahead. Cold water immersion is definitely an issue in areas where the boats come out of dry docks right after the ice goes out and also in the coastal ocean waters and for much of the season in the Great Lakes. Every year I discover a tip or a fact that I did not know or had forgotten with regard to how to be prepared for any situation when you are cruising. After our safety speil you'll learn that one of our readers has won the $100 gift certificate after completing our short survey, and you can get in on the Parks Canada 2 for 1 promo for using the waterways at a discounted rate. All of this and Vikings too! Happy reading.
