National Safe Boating Week runs from May 22-28, 2021. This observance week is the annual kick-off of the Safe Boating Campaign, a global effort to encourage responsible boating and consistent life jacket wear by recreational boaters. U.S. Coast Guard statistics show that drowning was the reported cause of death in four out of every five recreational boating fatalities in 2019, and that 86 percent of those who drowned were not wearing life jackets.
