The goal of this year’s event was not only to surpass the 1,685 entrants from last year but also to promote the comfortable and versatile PFD and lifejacket options available. The event also kicked off National Safe Boating Awareness Week (May 19 - 25). Other participants across North America hosted Ready, Set, Wear It! events to collectively beat last year’s record.
“This is the third year we’ve partnered with industry marine associations for the Ready, Set, Wear It! event and the turnout gets better year after year,” comments Rick Cassels, Mustang Survival’s Major Accounts Manager and long time marine safety advocate, “I always say the best personal flotation device out there is the one you wear. This fun and engaging event not only promotes safety on the water, but provides a prime venue for anyone interested in learning more about PFDs and lifejackets to try one on and see how comfortable and easy they are to use.
”One lucky participant also won a Mustang Survival PFD family prize pack which included two Mustang Survival M.I.T. 35 Inflatable PFDs and two Classic kids’ vests.This year’s participating partners in Vancouver, BC, included: Canadian Coast Guard, Canadian Power & Sail Squadron, Canadian Safe Boating Council, Smart Boater, Transport Canada, Vancouver Marine Police Department and more.Learn more about inflatables and how to choose one that fits you and your water activity needs at: www.mustangsurvival.com
