  • Sunscreen protects your skin from the harsh UV radiation of the sun, and should be worn regardless of whether it is sunny or cloudy. Mineral-based sunscreens with SPF 15 or higher provide protection for several hours, but should be reapplied frequently throughout the day to exposed skin for maximum efficacy.
  • While you should actively avoid boating on days when poor weather is predicted, it’s important to remember that changes in the weather can occur quickly and unexpectedly, especially during the summer. If you spot a storm, head back to the marina, but keep in mind that you may not beat the weather to shore. As poor weather approaches, slow your boat’s speed and have passengers put on life vests and congregate toward the middle of the boat for added stability. Turn on your navigation lights and close all windows and doors to keep water out.
  • Maintaining your boat and the supplies in your emergency kit will ensure you’re prepared for any type of weather. Before you leave the marina, check your boat to identify any issues that might need attention. In windy weather, keep loose objects below decks and secure ropes and other components that could come loose in a strong gust.
