Boating Safety Presentation @ Barrington Yacht Club

March 28, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Whether you are a seasoned boater or a novice, we can all benefit from learning about “The Rules of the Road”, “best practices” on the water, Aids to Navigation, and how to access the most up-to-date information about boating events on Rhode Island waters.

The Better Bay Alliance is offering free presentations on boating safety at various locations throughout Rhode Island.


The next presentation will be held at The Barrington Yacht Club on Tuesday, March 28 from 6:30-8:30 pm.


Join us for this free event. Open to the public!

The core modules of the seminar are presented by Dave Lussier, a local boater who has been boating on Narragansett Bay his entire life, a former USCG 100T Captain license holder, and former instructor for the US Power Squadrons. Besides topics such as Rules of the Road that are covered by many education offerings, this seminar is unique since it also covers some local aspects of Narragansett Bay such as fish traps, navigation hazards, and a comprehensive explanation of what a sailboat regatta might look like on the water to the typical non-racing sailor or the power boat community.


It is part of the mission of the BBA to educate boaters on general boating safety topics such as these, as well as inform the boating community on what is happening on all Rhode Island waters as far as events, education opportunities, and other local info. The BBA is a non-profit dedicated to making boating safer on our waters and more info can be found at betterbayalliance.org.
