We are always looking for help in promoting safe and responsible boating. There are many ways to help. You can join us and participate in our activities to promote safe boating. But if membership is not for you, you can help by being a safe and responsible boater yourself... and encourage others to do so. You can use these web pages and web contact forms to tell us your ideas about how we can improve in New London County to make recreational boating safer and more fun.
There are other organizations in New London County and all over the country that partner with us in serving to promote safe boating. Some of those links are listed below. Some of the links below may be commercial sites, so please see our Disclaimer Statement.
