Taught by members of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, this course is ideal for those who enjoy boating but are not often at the helm. Because emergencies can and do occur on the water, any passenger may find themselves 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 such 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.
All required materials are included in the course fee.
This raffle is part of Let Art Inspire, the Colby Museum’s wellness initiative, in connection with exhibition Hew Locke: Here’s the Thing.
