RBS Outreach Newsletter Archives

The most recent newsletter is issue 3 of "RBS Job One" 2017, July-August

This issue announces the 2016 Recreational Boating Statistics published by the Coast Guard, followed by the announcement of the $5.26 million in grant awards to nonprofit organizations to conduct 37 projects for boating safety, including one to the Coast Guard Auxiliary Association for a "Paddlecraft Safety Initiative," which will be conducted by the Auxiliary, and another grant to JSI Research & Training Institute for the Coast Guard's ongoing Life Jacket Wear Observation Study and how the Auxiliary will staff 80 of the 124 observation sites.

It tells the personal account of a kayaker who nearly drowned in Cape Cod Bay, plus lessons learned from recent Coast Guard rescues, and an encounter with a young couple of would-be kayakers that might have saved their lives. It tells you the new online address for Coast Guard documents, about an agreement with Canada on approving personal lifesaving appliances, and reasons you should attend NACON 2017 in Orlando, August 23-26.
