America’s Boating Course for youth – 2nd location just added

July 13, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Update: The Buzzards Bay Sail and Power Squadron is offering this course in two locations for 12 – 15 year old students.

It is the United States Power Squadron’s primary effort toward public instruction in the fundamentals of boating. This course is recognized as one of the very  best in introducing people to boating. At the national level, the ABCourse meets National Association of State Boating Law Administrators’ certification requirements. At the state level, it meets Massachusetts’ requirements for boat operation by 12-15 year old boaters.

This course covers the basics of operating a boat safely, including rules of the road, aids to navigation, required equipment, and boat handling techniques.

This program covers a lot of material in a short period of time, so you must BE ON TIME. Bring your “A Game,” any snacks you need, water or drinks, and a lunch.

Completion of a pre-course assignment is required. Contact Richard Moore for more details at chmbrrck@live.com or 508-888-8238
