APRIL IS SAFETY MONTH AT EHYC

While we will not be conducting in-person boat safety checks at this time, we want to provide members with some resources to assist in ensuring requirements for boat safety equipment and safe boat operation are being met.

Please find below the one-page Boating Safety Checklist. In addition, hard copies are available outside the office from April 1st. Penny at Thunderbird Marine Supplies welcomes your call for any items you may need, and she will get it ready for you for contactless pickup at Thunderbird Marine Supplies (604 921-9011)

Contactless fire extinguisher checks and flare disposal:
A table will be setup outside the office for you to drop off your fire extinguishers from Tuesday April 13th until Thursday April 15th with pickup on Saturday April 17th. More details and instructions to follow.  Details on flare disposal also to follow.

Did You Know?

We are ALL responsible for safety – our own and that of others. If you spot an unsafe condition (or unsafe act) please bring it to the attention of the individual responsible, and to the Club Office or the Executive responsible – ie. Rear Commodore, Vice Commodore, etc.
