It’s been a very warm December. Don’t ruin the holidays by risking it all on thin ice!

Since our shipmates were out training on the ice we want to remind you that ice is NEVER 100% SAFE. Especially now, it's unusually warm and what ice we have is not very strong. It's simply not worth the risk to be on it!

As we near the close of 2023, we want to thank all our members for their many thousands of hours put into our meeting the mission of improving recreational boating safety here in NE Wisconsin. Our members work hard - and we also get together to have fun. In 2023 the Green Bay Flotilla held our first series of Auxiliary Summer Fellowship gatherings during three end-of-the-season Door County events. Sturgeon Bay’s Harmony by the Bay, Egg Harbor’s Concerts in the Park, and Baileys Harbor’s Concerts in the Park.
Be sure to keep an eye out here for next season's events that we’ll have a presence at. It’s a great way to meet Auxiliarists and learn more about what we do and how to join.

It’s World Maritime Day.

We're experiencing some of the hottest and days of summer. Great boating weather right? Well if you take the right precautions it can be! Here are some tips for staying safe out on the water when it's hot.

Before you go: Tell a friend your FLOAT PLAN. Where are you departing from? Where are you going? When will you be back? Sharing this with someone ashore can save your life.

Now, while you are out there...

Stay Hydrated: One of the most basic (and one of the most forgotten) ways to keep your body cool on hot days is by keeping yourself hydrated. When your body is hot, it perspires as a way to regulate your body temperature. So, you need to frequently replenish liquids in order to remain hydrated on extra hot days. Even if you don’t feel thirsty, you need to drink plenty of water.
REMEMBER: Alcohol reduces hydration, and affects you faster when it's hot. Play it safe, drink lots of water. If you don’t drink enough fluids, you may run the risk of heatstroke and need help.

Use Sunscreen: Being out on a boat all day under the hot sun can be extremely dangerous. You need to use sunscreen on a regular basis if you want to protect your skin from harmful UV rays; it’s one of the most important hot weather tips we can share with you. And don’t be fooled by cloudy conditions, you’re still at risk even when the sun isn’t out.

Protect Your Eyes: With intense UV rays from the sun while out on the water, it’s important to protect your eyes. Opt for polarized lenses that can help to cut down on the sun’s glare on the water.

Wear Protective Clothing: Opt for light, loose-fitting, breathable fabrics in light colors. Don’t count out long-sleeve tops or long pants. By keeping these on hand, you can give your arms and legs a break from the sun while staying cool.

Wear a hat, even if it’s a simple baseball hat, in order to keep the sun off your face, neck, ears and shoulders. The wider the brim, the better!

Use The Buddy System: On hot days, it can be a literal lifesaver to utilize the age-old buddy system. Don’t go out fishing alone; bring a boating or fishing buddy, relative or friend along so you can watch out for each other in case someone gets sunstroke.

Never forget.

D-Day: the largest amphibious invasion in the history of warfare.

On June 6, 1944, approximately 156,000 brave American, British and Canadian soldiers risked their lives to storm five beaches along the coast of France. This battle resulted in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from N**i Germany’s control during World War II and the inevitable downfall of the Third Reich. Today, we honor and remember those Allied soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen who made the ultimate sacrifice 🇺🇸
