The National Safe Boating Council and Canadian Safe Boating Council are teaming up to set a world record.

The groups are encouraging boaters, boating safety educators and anyone else who would like to join in on the fun to participate in "Inflatable Life Jacket World Record Day."

Participants from across North America will simultaneously inflate an inflatable life jacket to set a world record. The inaugural event will be held at 11 a.m. EDT May 20.

World Record Day will help to usher in National Safe Boating Week, which runs May 22-28, and its goal of informing the boating public about safety, specifically life jackets.
