Boating Safety Courses Available - FREE - US Coast Guard Auxiliary, Southport
Safety is top priority on the water, and the USCGA is a leader in providing us with many opportunities to learn about boating safety, seamanship, and vessel inspection. As Fleet Captain, I highly encourage everyone who plans to play on the water to learn as much as you can so that you and your passengers can be responsible and safe while enjoying the best thing on earth - boating!
The USCG Boating Safety and Seamanship Course for this spring is already filled, however, if enough people contact them, they might plan a second Seamanship course for later in the year. Contact Fred Robertie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Boating Safety Courses will be held again in April, May, June, July, and September. These are one-day (Saturday) courses held at the Progress Energy Center in Southport. Make it a family affair! Again, contact Fred Robertie at email@example.com for dates and availability.
Vessel Examinations are a major way to ensure safety on the water. The USCG offers free inspections for recreational and commercial vessels by appointment. See the Vessel Examination flyer on our bulletin board or go to the USCG website mentioned below.
