Big Bear Lake, CA, May 22nd, 2016 – This summer, the US Coast Guard Auxiliary is again offering “About Boating Safety” courses on Saturday, June 11th and again on August 20th.
This fun and exciting course will cover topics such as boating laws, personal safety equipment, safe boat handling, navigation rules, personal watercraft safety, as well as local rules and knowledge.
The first of the two 8-hour, one-day courses will meet on Saturday June 11th, from 8:00 to 5:30 p.m. at the MWD Board Room located at 40524 Lakeview Drive. If you cannot attend this course, another is being offered on August 20th.
Upon completion of this course, a nationally recognized, lifetime certificate is awarded, and many insurance companies offer a discount on boat insurance to certificate holders.
The course is free, however, there is a $45 charge for the textbooks, which are available in advance at the MWD along with the pre-registration sign-in sheet.
The things you will learn in this class will just help make your day on the lake that much more safe and enjoyable. We hope to see you there!
