BoatU.S. (Boat Owners Association of The United States) and its 870 BoatU.S. Cooperating Marinas are co-sponsors of this grass-roots 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. BBQs, music, raffles, charity fundraisers, beach clean-ups, regattas and boat safety demonstrations are all part of the festivities.
"Marinas are more than just a locally-run small business. They are invaluable to the boating lifestyle and fulfill a critical need by providing waterway access and boating services," said Jim Schofield, director of the BoatU.S. Cooperating Marina Program and 2007 Marina Day Committee Member. "This event gives us an opportunity to share with town leaders how a marina contributes economically and allows a community to enjoy the water," he added.
