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