Smith Mountain Lake Helps Set Water Safety Record
Smith Mountain Lake is not without highly successful water safety advocacy, and an event in May helped prove the lake community’s excellence in safety awareness. The National Safe Boating Council held its fourth annual “Ready, Set, Wear It!” world record day on May 18th this year, of which Smith Mountain Lake placed third nationally. Participants around the world were invited to participate in the event which required people to inflate their inflatable life jacket or wear an inherently buoyant life jacket to break the world record for life jacket wear.
The event promotes proper life jacket wear while boating and participation in recreational water activities across the globe. Smith Mountain Lake received stand-out status when 127 participants gathered at Bridgewater Marina, coming in third nationally and sixth worldwide for attendance. Smith Mountain Lake continues to make its mark in recreational lake fun while staying safe. Just another reason we’re so proud to call this place home.
