Proper boating safety measures can be the difference between life and death according to Lou Pasquesi, Lieutenant Commander of the Door County Sail and Power Squadron. National Safe Boating Week began Saturday and groups such as the US Power Squadrons and US Coast Guard are advocating for boaters to take boating safety courses, have your boat inspected, and always wear a life jacket while on the water. Pasquesi says that a confident and educated boater will have more fun and be safer.
The Door County Sail and Power Squadron offers boat inspections and will be hosting a boaters’ safety class June 11th-14th. The class will take place at NWTC in Sturgeon Bay and costs $20.
