A common misconception of Relay is that it is an athletic event. On the contrary, there is no requirement of athletic prowess.

2. Have you ever run aground?

On April 1 and April 2 the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary will offer two boaters local knowledge courses to avoid this costly and embarrassing situation.
