Boating Safety Overview

An important aspect of the mission of the RCM-SAR is to promote boating safety.  A determining factor in the prevention of search and rescue incidents is effective boater education.  Knowledgeable boaters are safe boaters and safe boaters are generally less likely to be involved in search and rescue incidents. The coastal waters in the Southern Gulf Islands attract thousand of boaters in a wide variety of craft from small open boats and kayaks to large sail and powerboats.  RCM-SAR  25 provides boating safety programs;
