Sail-World.com : Setting a world record for boating safety and life jacket wear
Setting a world record for boating safety and life jacket wear

'The team at Northside Marine in preparation for World Life Jacket-Day'    Marine Queensland

Marine Queensland and Wear It Australia, in association with the North American National Safe Boating Council, are encouraging everyone to get involved on Saturday, 17th of May 2014 for the 'Ready, Set, Wear It' Life Jacket World Record Day.

Life Jacket World Record Day aims to gather as many participants as possible from Australia and around the World all wearing their personal floatation device (PFD).

'This is a great initiative to promote the lifesaving use of personal floatation devices' said Marine Queensland President Matthew Hodson

With such a vast selection of PFD types and styles available today it is important to take time to become acquainted with the different options and more importantly make sure your choice of PFD is the right choice for your on water activity.'

Marine Queensland is excited to be running a Life Jacket World Record Day event at Brisbane based marine dealership, Northside Marine.

'We invite everyone to bring their life jackets to Northside Marine between 10am and 12noon on Saturday the 17th of May and be a part of this world record setting event' said Hodson.

A host of experts from Maritime Safety Queensland, Volunteer Marine Rescue and PFD manufacturers will be available on the day to answer all safe boating related questions. In addition, Northside Marine will be offering FREE life jacket inspections to help ensure boaties are being kept safe when out on the water.

There will be plenty of marine safety related giveaways across the morning.

Volunteer Marine Rescue Sandgate will be firing up the BBQ and running a sausage sizzle across the morning with all proceeds going straight to the VMR to assist with the important work they do across our waterways.

Further information on the Wear It! campaign and Life Jacket World Record Day can be found at www.wearitaustralia.com.au.
