Last year I participated in River Safety Day, spearheaded by the folks behind the Prairie Lily and Inland Marine Technologies. I attended a few of the planning meetings and got to spend some time that afternoon playing in and on the water doing some rescue demos. It was a great day on the water, even if my capsize was a bit contrived. Although I'm unable to participate this year (I'm attending a canoe course that day!), I look forward to being a part of this event again in the future. They created the following clip to promote this year's event.

At River Safety Day last year, we capsized a vessel for demonstration purposes. Be sure to join us May 4, 2019, for River Safety Day, where you can see other great river demonstrations ˙ ˙ ˙ ˙ ˙ #YXE #ShareTheRiver #riversafety #watersmart #besafeonthewater #livingyxe #riverfun #saskatoon #watersafe #saskatooning #yxeliving #saskatoonevents #bridgecity #riveradventures
