Fishing for boating safety tournament

Last Saturday the Monica Burguera Foundation held their 5th Annual Fishing for Boating Safety Tournament benefiting boating safety awareness and education. Anglers and guest were greeted by foundation staff members and volunteers at the Key Biscayne Yacht Club. Over 25 boats participated and over 100 family members and friends joined the day's festivities to raise funds for the foundation which seducaes the community on water safety.

The foundation currently offers free monthly boating safety classes in partnership with the US Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 67 and 69. Classes are in English and Spanish and held in the foundations office located in 3750 West Flagler Street. Graduates who complete the program and exam are awarded USCG Auxiliary Certificate of Accomplishment and the Florida Boater’s ID. The ID is required to operate a vessel for persons born after or on January 1, 1988.

“Events like our Fishing for Boating Safety help support and fund the free monthly boating safety classes that are held in partnership with the US Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 67 and 69. We appreciate all the support from the community, sponsors and participants. Boating Safety always wins. We will continue the Monica Burguera Foundation’s mission – to make our local waterways safer through education,” said Mari Novo, Director of Operations for the Monica Burguera Foundation.
