Should You Take a Boating Education Course?

By Sailingguide

National Safe Boating Week reminds us, here at the beginning of the summer sailing season, of the importance of staying safe on the water. But what exactly does safety involve? Here's a handy checklist of the topics typically included in boating safety courses. Go down the list to see if you are already knowledgeable and skilled in these different areas - or whether you have gaps you need to fill with some more reading or perhaps a course like the ones offered by the Coast Guard Auxiliary. Key safety topics include knowing your boat and its equipment, preparing well before heading out, all aspects of safe boat operation, and being prepared for all the different kinds of emergencies that can happen. It takes just a minute to check that you know what you need to keep on enjoying the water for years to come.
