TORONTO, May 11 /CNW/ - The Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons 2011 Canadian Safe Boating Awareness
Week* will take place from Coast to Coast to Coast in Canada from May 28 to June 3, 2011.
The purpose of this initiative is to ensure that all Canadians who head
out on the waters in canoes, kayaks, sailboards, sailboats, fishing
boats, personal watercraft, power boats, cruisers and houseboats are
equipped with the knowledge required to have a safe day on the water.
The Canadian Power & Sail Squadrons will be providing FREE Recreational Vessel Courtesy Checks*. At the invitation of the boat owner and with reference to the
appropriate section in the "Safe Boating Guide", the CPS Boating Safety Specialist reviews the safety equipment required by
law. Boats that meet regulations are issued a 2011 CPS RVCC decal.
The Canadian Power & Sail Squadron is a leader in training for the
recreational boater, with over 42,000 members across the country and is
presenting this initiative in conjunction with its industry partners,
to promote and encourage safe boating practices to all Canadians.
CPS will post special news releases and other valuable information on
its website (www.cpsboat.ca). This will include content for radio and press releases as provided by
