It’s National Safe Boating Week And While Spreading The Word, A World Record Attempt Was Made [VIDEO]
It's that time of the year where we all get set to hit the water for fishing and recreation, so it's a perfect time for National Safe Boating Week. This weekend, the U.S. Army Corps Of Engineers was helping spread the message of the "Ready, Set, Wear It!" campaign, reminding everyone of the importance of wearing life jackets.
While guests where invited to don a life jacket at the Maritime Visitor Center in Duluth, they were also being invited to take part in an attempt to make history for most life jackets worn on a single day worldwide—just one of 189 similar events around the world.
