(LONG BEACH --- Aug. 23) --- The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary is set to teach About Boating Safely, a one-day class Sept. 24 at the VA Long Beach Healthcare Learning Center.
"The class will help to keep your friends and family safe, and make your time on the water more pleasurable," said Michael Bozarth, the USCG Aux. instructor who's scheduled to teach the class related to powerboats, sail boats and personal watercraft.
The eight-hour class will cover boating jargon and laws, on-water emergencies, navigation, skiing, river boating, trailering, storing, hunting aboard your boat and protecting it.
The course will satisfy the requirement of the new California State Boating Education Law (SB-941). In addition, many insurance companies will give discounts to those who've successfully completed this class.
It's free, but the textbook costs $30. It'll take place from 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. at 5901 E. 7th St., Long Beach, 90822, Building 165, Learning Center, Room 209a.
