On behalf of Come Sailing, Inc., owner Capt. Michael Blanchard has signed and is committed to the Boater Pledge Advocating for the Safe and Responsible Opening of the Chicago Harbors. The pledge reads as follows:
I hereby affirm that I am a boater who is advocating for the safe and responsible opening of the Chicago Harbors. I recognize that due to the current public health crisis, recreation must be done in a conscionable manner incorporating the best current public health practices and policies. As a boater, I acknowledge that I have an enhanced social responsibility to enjoy the lakefront in a way that keeps my friends, family, and general public safe
I understand that my actions affect others, and I pledge to recreate responsibly under the following guidelines once the harbors are allowed to open:
I further recognize that failure to observe municipal policies once the Chicago Harbors open may result in forfeiture of vessel mooring permits and other consequences.
Boating is a safe recreational activity and I look forward to contributing to a responsible 2020 Chicago boating season.
Additional information about the pledge and the Chicago Harbors' COVID-19 response can be found on the Chicago Harbors website.
