PORPA’s core mission is to promote SAFE boating.  We do this in a number of ways:

  • Promoting safety training from recognized institutions like World Rowing.
  • Public education like the boater safety course we sponsored
  • Providing safety boats for events
  • Requiring demonstrated safety knowledge and skill before participating in any PORPA event
  • Encouraging each other to continually improve our skills and awareness
  • Association's Certifications for type of activity

Our Coxwains are our onsite safety leaders which is why we train them to always be aware of Safety Issues around them.
