Sausalito Safe Boating Expo



Safety is a peculiar concept. Yes, it’s essential for the continuation of our lives; lives we’ve spent having slogans like “safety first” beaten (no pun intended) into our heads, but safety is in dire need of a makeover. While safety is totally important, it’s not portrayed as fun or sexy, and the word has lost it’s power over the years. Maybe it’s because we talk about safety like it’s luck — “safe travels” may as well be “good luck” and we don’t get a lot of direction with “be safe.”

Fortunately, the Coast Guards are doing something about safety’s image this weekend. To kick off National Safe Boating Week (it’s a thing) a safe boating expo is taking place and it’s set to include tours of Coast Guard vessels and the Coast Guard station, demonstrations courtesy of friendly bomb-sniffing dogs, helicopter rescue demos(!), and free life jackets*. Dogs, helicopters, free stuff — now that’s my idea of safety.

*While supplies last
