U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is offering the one-day, “Boat America” boating safely class. This beginner boating class will give the novice recreational boater the knowledge needed to obtain the FWC safety certification. Anyone born on or after January 1, 1988, who operates a vessel powered by 10 horsepower or more must pass an approved boater safety course and have in his/her possession photographic identification and a boating safety education identification card issued by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Many boat insurance companies may offer discounts on boating insurance to boaters who successfully complete the Boat America class. The presenters are trained professionals of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary who facilitate the sharing of experiences and relate courseware to our local area. Greg Masonick, the Flotilla Commander of the Fort Myers Beach Flotilla 91 stated, “Education and awareness of boating hazards is the key to understanding how to operate a boat safely. Participants learn the importance of life jackets, how to reduce risks, being prepared, and exercising good judgment. People are very busy today, and this one-day class can fit easily into everyone’s calendar. Unlike online classes, this program offers student interaction, shared perspectives, and local area knowledge.” The cost is $45 per person and includes study material. Advance registration is required, by phone at 239-690-6780 option 1 or online at - the class fills up quickly so register today.
