Safety tips for National Safe Boating Week

This week, boating enthusiasts in San Diego and throughout the state and country will mark the annual National Safe Boating Week. To educate and inform boaters of all skill levels, especially in light of the recent fatal boating accidents in California, the United States Coast Guard is offering a list of safety tips aimed to avoid boat accidents, injuries and deaths.

Accident lawsuits could increase safety in cruise industry

Earlier this month, we discussed the fatal cruise ship accident that took place off the coast of Italy last month, and wondered if, because of the large number of cruises that depart from San Diego, such a traumatic boating accident could conceivably take place here. However, we concluded in that blog post that such a fatal accident would be unlikely to take place off the coast of California.

Could a cruise ship accident happen in San Diego?

As residents likely know, San Diego is one of the most popular cities in the U.S. for cruise ship departure and arrival. So following the fatal boating accident off the coast of Italy last month, it is only natural that San Diego residents and travelers from across the country are wondering: could an accident like that happen here?

One fatality in California boating accident, part two

Earlier this week, we wrote about a tragic boat crash in Dana Point Harbor over Memorial weekend. The boating accident took the life of one boat passenger and injured three others when the 30-foot boat became pinned against the rocks and all four were swept overboard.

One fatality in California boating accident, part one

What started as a fun Memorial weekend boating trip off California's Dana Point turned frightening and deadly when a boat crashed into rocks and sank, throwing its four passengers overboard. After being rescued by helicopter and airlifted to a nearby hospital, one person was pronounced dead.

National Safe Boating Week stresses the importance of water safety

Every year the National Safe Boating Council and a variety of partners across the nation organize a week-long effort focused on reducing the number of boating accidents seen each year. This year, National Safe Boating Week will begin on May 21st and run through the 27th.
