  • Boat handling under normal conditions
  • Adverse conditions and emergencies
  • Types of boats and boating terminology
  • Required and recommended equipment
  • Boating regulations and navigation rules
  • Lines and knots
  • Charts and aids to navigation
  • Piloting techniques (in Boating only)
  • Marine radiotelephone usage

  • And much, much more
    These are instructor taught classes offering an opportunity for feedback and comaraderie.
