LAKEPORT, Calif. — On May 20, the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, Flotilla 08-08 of Lake County, participated in National Safe Boating Week by holding a free life jacket giveaway for youngsters at Library Park in Lakeport.

The Flotilla was assisted by the Konocti Women’s Service Club, which made possible this free life jacket project.

Children 12 years of age and younger were registered and weighed and then fitted with the correct size life jacket by Flotilla members who instructed the parents in the proper wearing of the jacket.

Children’s activity books on water safety were given to the youngsters.

The Flotilla also set up a table with all phases of boating safety information as well as packets for boaters which contained supplies to prevent and clean up fuel spills.

Information on complimentary vessel safety checks was available.

Both organizations agreed that if one child’s life was saved due to the wearing of the free life jacket, all their efforts were well worth it.

Their message to all is, “Play safe, wear your life jacket.”

KELSEYVILLE, Calif. — On Saturday, May 27, the Konocti Bay Sailing Club will hold a sailing swap meet at Braito’s Marina.

The swap meet will take place from 9 to 11 a.m.

Members will be bringing used but serviceable sailing gear and equipment, lines and hardware they’ve gathered over the years to swap, sell, trade or donate.

Use this opportunity to get your boat in shape for the season and also meet the dedicated sailors of the club.

The club will be getting rid of old inventory as well, including regatta shirts and other club apparel.

Club members also can offer advice on rigging, restoring and other general sailing knowledge to make your experiences on the water more fun. If you have gear, lines or clothing, bring your stuff down. It’s free.

Because of parking space issues, please don’t bring any boats to Braito’s Marina to sell. Write something up and maybe a few pictures as there may be visitors that might be interested, but keep in mind, most KBSC members already have their own boats.

At 11 a.m. they will have a skippers meeting regarding that day's race. There may be crewing opportunities to join in the fun, no membership required.

The race is scheduled to start at 1 p.m.

Braito’s Marina is located at 1555 Eastlake Drive in Kelseyville.
