Safety First

The Peninsula Yacht Club’s In-Water Boat Show & Boating Safety Day Whaler and have a small little course to test your boat operating skills,” explains Harry Smith, marina manager at The Peninsula Yacht Club, adding that people should sign up for this activity beforehand. “We try to let people test their skills. If they say they know how to drive a boat, let’s put it to the test.” In addition to vessel safety checks and the Power Boat Challenge, guests can also look at the latest boats from various dealerships in the Southeast. Smith says there will be close to 30 boats on display on land and water and that dealers will be offering test drives. There will also be lawn games for kids, club tours, free hot dogs and snow cones, a bounce house and more.

The Peninsula Yacht Club In-Water Boat Show & Boating Safety Day is April 6.

“What we want to try to do is keep that awareness of basic boating safety, especially the time of year of the boat show,” says Smith. “We want to be that avenue. …That’s a big deal for us.” — Lori K. Tate, photography
