                Proclamation 8981 of May 17, 2013

                
National Safe Boating Week, 2013

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Every year, the United States Coast Guard joins 
                partners nationwide to raise awareness about boating 
                responsibly. We highlight that important work during 
                National Safe Boating Week, and we encourage all 
                boaters to take appropriate precautions before casting 
                off this season.

                Safe boating starts onshore. Americans planning to 
                spend a day on the water should prepare by filing a 
                float plan with family or a friend, getting a free 
                vessel safety check, and participating in a boating 
                safety course. As they embark, boaters should make sure 
                they have checked the marine forecast and all 
                passengers are wearing a life jacket. And to put an end 
                to preventable accidents that claim too many lives 
                every year, individuals should never operate a boat 
                under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

                Boating is an important part of our national heritage. 
                This week, let us carry that tradition forward by 
                following commonsense safety procedures and keeping our 
                lakes, rivers, and oceans safe for all to enjoy.

                In recognition of the importance of safe boating 
                practices, the Congress, by joint resolution approved 
                June 4, 1958 (36 U.S.C. 131), as amended, has 
                authorized and requested the President to proclaim 
                annually the 7-day period prior to Memorial Day weekend 
                as ``National Safe Boating Week.''

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 18 
                through May 24, 2013, as National Safe Boating Week. I 
                encourage all Americans who participate in boating 
                activities to observe this occasion by learning more 
                about safe boating practices and taking advantage of 
                boating education.
