Do you want to be a safe and smart boater? Do you want your loved ones to be safe and smart boaters?
The North Strand Sail and Power Squadron will be offering its America’s Boating Course as a one-day class from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, March 2, at the J. Bryan Floyd Community Center, 1030 Possum Trot Road in North Myrtle Beach, S.C. Coffee, donuts and a light lunch will be provided.
The course offers useful materials and information about many boating safety topics, including boat handling, piloting skills, navigational charts and adverse conditions.
In addition to the classroom instruction, there is a free optional Chart Smart class and on-the-water hands-on instruction on instructors’ boats to the Intracoastal Waterway. Instructors live in both North and South Carolina and boat in the local waters.
North Carolina law requires that anyone younger than 26 must take a boating safety class and show proof of completion. South Carolina requires a safe boating class for anyone younger than 16 to operate a jet ski or a boat powered by a 15 hp or more motor.
