Suzuki Outboard Motors Take Part in Summer Boat Camp in Sweden
Summer Boat Camp for children organized by Navigationsgruppen, a marine educate company, has started yet again this year in Sweden. Suzuki’s Swedish Distributor, KGK MOTOR AB, has been cooperating with Navigationsgruppen to organize this event annually for more than 6 years to introduce the fun of boating to children. This summer, 7 camps are scheduled to be held in 4 places. In the current situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, boating which is a great way to enjoy the nearby nature is becoming popular among a lot of people, and as a result, all the camps have been fully booked.
During the summer camp, children between the ages 12 to 15 learn a wide variety of basic boating technologies such as how to handle a boat, how to navigate/read sea charts, how to perform life-saving methods, and how to extinguish fires. The children use Suzuki DF15A rigged on an inflatable boat to learn how to drive a boat for the very first time. Every year, this event receives many positive feedback from the participants.
Boating is a great way to enjoy time with family while keeping physical distance, and Suzuki is proud to take part in introducing the fun of boating all around the world!
