This is the ideal course for those who enjoy boating but are not often at the helm. Boating problems and emergencies can occur, and you may find yourself suddenly in command. How can you get help? How can you get to shore? What can you do if boating mishaps arise? This course covers some essential boating information about what to do in these situations. Topics include pre-underway planning, developing situational awareness, understanding how boats handle, VHF radio introduction including how to get help in an emergency, Coast Guard required safety equipment and regulations, and accident assessment and reporting.

This course is taught by members of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary.

This class meets Monday, April 27, 2020, and Wednesday, April 29, 2020, from 6 – 8 pm. All required materials are included in the course fee.
