ABC’s of Boating Class (2 Days – Oct 22 & 29)
Come and learn…. At the TIYC University
What? The basics of boating, Sail or Power
Many of our new members said they had little boating experience/skills, but would like to learn. So TIYC has partnered with the Diablo Chapter of the United States Sail and Power Squadron, to provide some basic boating skills in a class called “The ABCs of Boating”
This 2 day class is being offered on 2 consecutive Saturdays: October 22 and 29. An all day class, you will learn about navigation aids (and what the word means), lights and sound signals, government regulations (for you and your boat), anchoring, departing and returning to a dock (without big bumps or yelling), trailering, and much more. While you won’t get to operate a boat during this class, you will become more confident (and proficient) when we get to that step.
So, whether you are new to the subject, want a refresher, want to see if “things have changed since I first learned this”, or want to bring (and sponsor) someone who is just a beginner….
The instruction is free; you just pay for the book and additional materials ($35). Couples may chose to buy one book for both of you.
