Huntington – Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci is urging all who venture out on Huntington’s waterways to register for the free Boating Safety Certification Course offered under the Town’s Victoria Gaines Boating Safety Program in March and May.


Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci offered words of caution for boaters and passengers on the Town’s waterways: “As a waterfront community, it is our goal to ensure that all who enjoy Huntington’s waterways are doing so in a safe and responsible manner in order to prevent avoidable tragedies.”


The Town of Huntington offers free Boating Safety Classes in March and May. Attendees who register, attend the full 8-hour course, and pass the test will receive a NYS Boating Safety credential issued by NYS Parks. Questions can be directed to the Harbormaster's office at (631) 351-3255. Adults and children (ages 10 & up) are welcome to register for the course online:


In May 2019, Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci announced that the Town's boating safety program would from that point on be known as the Town of Huntington Victoria Gaines Boating Safety Program, honoring Victoria Gaines and creating a legacy of preventing future boating tragedies in her name.
