Event Details

Alcohol is a factor in nearly 40% of boating incidents and many Canadians simply do not understand that there are intensifying factors, known as “stressors”, such as sun, wind, waves and the rocking motion of the boat that can greatly increase the effects of alcohol on the water.

There are many vessels where drinking is simply not allowed. Open alcohol containers are only allowed on boats that are design to be ‘residences’, with sleeping facilities, a head (washroom facilities) and cooking facilities. And drinking is only allowed when that boat is at anchor, docked or hard aground; never while underway.

The Canadian Safe Boating Council would like to remind boaters not to risk their lives, the lives of family members, friends or other boaters by drinking and boating. Boating and alcohol don’t mix!
