A push by the marine industry to involve more families in boating is the impetus for National Marina Day, June 8 2013. Across the country, marinas, dealerships and boatyards will be opening their gates and welcoming visitors with a range of activities.
Festivities include shop tours, boat demo rides, fun, games and more.
“National Marina Day is a great initiative to get more families involved with boating. Raised with boats myself, I can say that the self-confidence and sense of accomplishment I learned as a formative boater have enhanced my life greatly,” said Boating Magazine Editor-In-Chief, Kevin Falvey.
