Alexandria, VA.June 8th, 2013 (9am – 12 pm).
As part of a nationwide observance, Belle Haven Marina is celebrating Welcome to the Water on National Marina Day on June 8th, 2013 from 9am till noon.
“Welcome to the Water on National Marina Day is a celebration of boating,” said Belle Haven Marina’s President, George Stevens. “As families search for fun outdoor activities that everyone can enjoy we want to encourage them to give boating a try. Existing boaters are always ready to celebrate with a day on the water, but on this day we ask them to bring a non-boater out to share the experience. We hope you will visit Belle Haven Marina, learn about your boating, and enjoy the events we have planned.”
Belle Haven Marina’s Welcome to the Water on National Marina Day activities include:
ü Free 30 minute canoe and kayak rentals
ü Free 45 minute sailing lessons, 4 per boat with an instructor
ü Free 30 minute standup paddle board rentals
Participants should register by June 5th by calling the marina (703) 768-0018
"Now, more then ever, Americans need outdoor, safe, family-friendly ways to spend their leisure time. Welcome to the Water on National Marina Day introduces boating as just such an activity and reminds our existing customers and our community that Belle Haven Marina is a local, environmentally-friendly, beautiful gateway to on-the-water fun."
Welcome to the Water on National Marina Day is produced by the Association of Marina Industries, and Discover Boating. For more information, visit www.nationalmarinaday.org.
