U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Class Set to Begin

(LONG BEACH --- March 21) --- The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is scheduled to teach About Boating Safely on April 30 in Long Beach.

"The class is for boaters who operate powerboats, sail boats and personal watercraft," said USCG Aux. instructor Michael Bozarth, who's set to teach the eight-hour class.

Topics of instruction include boating jargon and laws, safe boating, on-water emergencies, boating law, navigation, skiing, river boating, trailering, storing, hunting and fishing aboard your boat and protection of your boat.

Starting in two years, state law will require boaters to take courses like this one to qualify for a California Vessel Operation Card as a result of SB941. In 2018, 20 year olds will have to have such a card, followed by 25 year olds in 2019; 35 year olds in 2020; 40 year olds, 2021; 45 year olds, 2022; 50 year olds, 2023; 60 year olds, 2024; and all persons in 2025.

The class is free, but the textbook costs $30. It'll take place from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Veterans Administration Long Beach Healthcare System, 5901 E. 7th St., Long Beach 90822, Bldg. 165, Learning Center, Room C-209A. Enter from 7th St.

For further information, contact Bozarth at BozUSCGA@gmail.com; or call him at 949.310.5098.
