Sea Tow and the non-profit Sea Tow Foundation will help open National Safe Boating Week, which runs from May 21-27.

"Late May is the start of boating season in many regions across the U.S.," Sea Tow Foundation executive director Gail Kulp said in a statement. "But even in communities that enjoy year-round boating this is a good time to remind boaters of some key boating safety practices."

Best practices include:

  • Take a boating safety course
  • Get a vessel safety check
  • File a float plan
  • Designate a sober skipper
  • Wear a life jacket

To help start National Safe Boating Week, the National Safe Boating Council, in partnership with the Canadian Safe Boating Council, is inviting boating safety professionals and members of the boating community to participate in this year's "Ready, Set, Inflate!" Inflatable Life Jacket World Record Day on May 21.

Throughout North America and around the world, participants will inflate life jackets to try to beat last year's world record of 1,154 participants.
