You Love the Ocean – It Doesn't Love You Back

Presented by Allen Insurance and Financial as a fundraiser for scholarships at Maine Maritime Academy

Mario Vittone presents thrilling stories and exciting tales designed to make your life on the water safe and survivable.

Join USCG rescue swimmer and marine safety expert Mario Vittone for an evening of stories about survival and rescue at sea in the worst conditions imaginable; about the bravery of both the rescued and the rescuers when all seemed lost; and what he thinks it takes to not just survive but also avoid tragedy at sea.

Mario Vittone is a leading expert on immersion hypothermia, drowning, sea survival, and safety at sea. His writing has appeared in Yachting Magazine, SaltWater Sportsman, MotorBoating Magazine, Lifelines, On-Scene, and Reader’s Digest. He has developed courses for municipal rescue teams and the military on search and rescue tactics and open ocean survival. In 2007, he was named as the Coast Guard Active Duty Enlisted Person of the Year and was named as the 2009 recipient of the Alex Haley Award for Journalism.

Allen Insurance and Financial is pleased to be working with Ocean Navigator Magazine, Professional Mariner Magazine and Maine Boats Homes & Harbors magazine as partners in this event.
