SAFTEY - BE SEEN BE SAFE. Its coming up to that time of year especially around dawn and dusk when visibility is poor, that you need to be seen, make sure you have boat lights and use them. Make sure you have PFDs in all boats and use them.

Clubs please send us your incident reports. We are strong believers for sharing information to learn from one another. After all hindsight is 20/20 and the most serious safety breach of all is to do nothing.
