Welcome to ReadySetWearIt.com!

Ready, Set, Wear It! aims to break the world record for the number of life jackets worn on one day. In addition, this event is a great opportunity to gather with friends and family while educating others at the same time about safe boating practices.

On May 20, 2017, boating safety educators, marine enforcement officials, politicians, media, and the public will gather across North America and throughout the world to try to beat the world record of 10,917 life jackets worn and inflatable life jackets inflated. Ready, Set, Wear It! Life Jacket World Record Day aims to raise public awareness about general boating safety practices placing emphasis on the importance of life jacket wear.

The event will officially launch at the beginning of National Safe Boating Week, May 20 – 26, 2017. Ready, Set, Wear It! events, including inflatable life jacket demonstrations, make for great TV and photo opportunities, but it is just the beginning of the North American Safe Boating Campaign message.

If interested in hosting an event, look under the ‘Resources’ tab for more information to help you plan your event.  Feel free to get creative! Have a cook out where everyone wears a life jacket. Set up a photo booth where participants can take fun poses while wearing a life jacket.

This event is coordinated by the National Safe Boating Council (NSBC) in partnership with the Canadian Safe Boating Council (CSBC) along with their respective members and affiliated organizations. The North American Safe Boating Campaign is produced under a grant from the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund, administered by the U.S. Coast Guard.
