The Calendar says its spring.
That means that the ice will melt… at some point. When it does, we’ll all be able to wear shorts, bathing suits and pilot our boats on the water. The US Coast Guard Auxiliary based in Milford will offer a course About Boating Safety on Saturday, April 11th at 8 AM.
For advanced registration prior to the class date, go to http://a0142403.uscgaux.info/. The USCG Auxiliary Flotilla 24-3 Training Center is located at 1 Helwig Street, Milford, CT, which is located one block north of Milford Boat Works. Walk-ins are welcome on day of the Class.
Instruction will cover all the basic topics involved in the safe operation of recreational boating and seamanship. It will also cover safe personal watercraft operation. Successful completion of this 8 hour ABS course satisfies the Connecticut licensing requirements for both boats and Personal Watercraft (PWC). Family participation is encouraged. Cost: $60.
*Please Note: All students will need to get a State of CT Conservation ID Number before taking the ABS/PWC class. Go to https://ct.outdoorcentral.net/InternetSales/Sales for a FREE ID number.
