The ACA has just signed a new Memorandum of Agreement with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary to enhance educational efforts and vessel safety checks for paddlers across the country.
"With this cooperative effort, we will reach out to the growing population of paddlers providing needed training to keep them safe on the water" said Jim Vass, the Auxiliary's National Commodore.
"The ACA is proud to continue our partnership with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary as we continually strive to improve the boating experience for the recreational paddler." - Chris Stec, ACA Chief Operating Officer
