August Boating Safety Course Info
Tuesday, August 06, 2013

MEDIA RELEASE
Boating Safety Course Planned
August 6, 2013

Florida boaters born on or after January 1, 1988, who operate a vessel or boat powered by at least 10 horsepower are required to take a Boating Safety Course. Even seasoned boaters can pick up valuable, life-saving information or learn a new technique that could prevent a boating accident. Florida requirements can be met and an identification card for boater safety (issued by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission) earned by successfully completing an approved Boating Safety Course.

A one-day free course is offered on Saturday, August 24th by the USCG Auxiliary Flotilla in Green Cove Springs, located in the Clay Port at the Reynolds Industrial Center. Boaters gain a better understanding of their boat, learn about safety preparation, understand the various legal requirements, hear how to react in emergency situations, get tips about proper boat operations, and learn about many other related boat safety issues. Seating is limited and reservations are required.

To make inquiries or reservations, contact flotilla14.5@gmail.com or call Neil Rattrie at 904-378-6232. Remember, your identification card acts as a boat license. Be sure to have your boater’s license with you whenever you're operating a watercraft that requires a "licensed" operator.
