National Marina Day Observance Upcoming
Placeholder Image
BoatU.S. Cooperating Marinas, which make boating more affordable by offering substantial discounts on fuel, transient slips and repairs, are ramping up for National Marina Day, Saturday, Aug. 11. BoatU.S. (Boat Owners Association of The United States) and its 870 BoatU.S. Cooperating Marinas are co-sponsors of this grassroots effort designed to bring local community attention to the valuable role marinas play in providing access to our waterways.

National Marina Day was created by the Association of Marina Industries (AMI) to highlight the important role marinas play in their communities.

With activities slated for the whole family, Marina Day 2007 will focus on how marinas are family-friendly gateways to recreational boating. Barbecues, music, raffles, charity fundraisers, beach clean-ups, regattas and boat safety demonstrations are all part of the festivities.
