U.S. COAST GUARD AUXILIARY OFFERS BOATING CLASSES

Flotilla 39-10 (9WR) of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary will offer a five-week Boating Safety course this spring. The course will be offered on Tuesday nights, once per week for five weeks, beginning April 24, 2018, from 7 to 9pm, at the Chicago Police Department 16th District Community Room, 5151 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago Il 60630

The class will cover topics such as Boat Construction and Nomenclature, Boat Handling, Safety and Legal Requirements, and Aids to Navigation, among others.

The course is an excellent introduction to boating and can be a great review for more experienced boaters who want to further their seamanship skills.

The United States Coast Guard strongly recommends that all boaters, both new and experienced, take this course to become knowledgeable in understanding boating and the rules under which boats operate. Upon completion of the course, students will receive an official certificate and ID card recognizing their successful efforts.

Registrations will be accepted through April 22nd..

For registration information, please call (312) 339-4201, (312) 545-2213,
