Safety Sunday 2024

Safe Boating Day – May 12, 2024

Fairwinds Marina, Nanoose Bay, BC

Nanoose and Nanaimo Squadrons, along with a number of Search and Rescue agencies, hosted a Safe Boating Day at the Fairwinds Marina located in Nanoose Bay, BC on May 12, 2024. 

We estimate we had 80+ people attend information booths, exhibits and SAR vessel tours. We had a number of people sign up for upcoming seminars, as well as ROC(M) courses this summer and fall. It was a great way for us to deliver a worthy event to the community we serve. Adopting a

wholistic approach to the safety message by having education, first responders, vendors and other key stakeholders (including the Royal Canadian Navy who explained what happens in nearby Area Whisky Golf) all together harkens back to our roots as a community-based safe boating organization. 

I am very grateful for the support we received from the many agencies and vendors who participated that day and our guests who took time out of their day to come learn how to be safer on the water.
