Recreational Vessel Courtesy Checks (RVCC)
This is one of the squadron's two major ways to promote boating safety; the other is training. These checks help boaters to be safe and legal. Windsor Squadron did the most of any Squadron in Canada in 2013: 140 checks, of those 120 Boats were considered complete and 20 were considered incomplete. 12 Members are trained to participate in the program throughout Essex County.
RVCC's in 2013 were done at:
Leamington Marina Safety Day
- Belle River Marina Opening
- South Port Sailing Club
- Lakeview Park Marina
- Riverside Marina
- Windsor Yacht Club
- Holiday Harbour Marina
- Ranta Marina – PWC Prostate Ride in July
We are available upon request for most any event or date with proper notice. Call now to book your event for 2014.
