Boating Safety Seminar- Bristol Yacht Club

April 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Safe Boating Seminars: The Better Bay Alliance will be offering free presentations on boating safety at various locations throughout Rhode Island.

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 and Aids to Navigation.

The safety seminars will also demonstrate our recently introduced product called LIVE CHART, which is a (free) interactive Google Map of all activities happening on RI waters.

For more information about The Better Bay Alliance, check out our website.

Who we are:

The Better Bay Alliance was formed shortly after a fatal boating accident on August 11, 2019 by a group of concerned boaters with a broad background of boating experience.
