Tennessee Boaters Invited to Boating Safety Day

Free event sponsored by Sea Tow, local, state and federal agencies


Tennessee boaters are invited to attend the first ever Boating Safety Day in Lenoir City. Boaters can bring their boats – by water or on a trailer – and get a free U.S. Coast Guard safety inspection. Boaters of all ages will learn about safe boating through demonstrations, by riding a personal watercraft (PWC) that simulates driving while intoxicated, and by taking the Sea Tow Foundation’s Boating Safety Challenge. Prizes, food and fun are sure to be had by water-lovers of all ages.
