The United States Power Squadron, aka America’s Boating Club, will teach a one-day recreational boating safety course at the Boothbay Region YMCA, at 261 Townsend Ave. in Boothbay Harbor, on Saturday, May 5. This is an 8-hour course that covers Maine boating laws, boat handling, and boat safety equipment. It is a nationally certified course with issuance of an operator’s license upon passing the course exam.
Completing this course should increase one’s confidence and skills as a boater, and most boat insurance companies offer premium discounts for completion.
Preregistration is required by Thursday, April 19. The cost is $70 for an individual or $95 for couples sharing materials.
