SAFE BOATING SEMINAR

Local knowledge and the sharing boating experiences, training by Coast Guard Auxiliary instructors, and FREE!  A great opportunity to re-enforce your safe boating practices and learn new skills on how to navigate our local waters.

Co-Sponsored by the Port of Edmonds, the Edmonds Yacht Club, and the Coast Guard Auxiliary, these seminars will benefit experienced boaters, novice boaters, those who enjoy small watercraft (kayaks, wind surfers, etc.), and the general public.

 

The first seminar will cover Safety and “Rules of the Road”.  Discussions will cover topics outside of the boating safety guides, such as how to keep from swamping small boats and watercraft while approaching the marina during busy times and how to share the waterways.  Also the group will share navigating tips to avoid the ferry, dive park, and beaches, and how to stay safe within the vessel traffic lanes.

 

Topics for the February seminar will include sharing local knowledge on docking within the Edmonds Marina, line handling and the use of correct knots, and dealing with common local weather and tide conditions.

 

In April, we will discuss Communications, including the proper use of the radio, border crossings, trip planning, and the importance of charts.

 

The 1 hour seminars, 7-8pm, will be held at the Edmonds Yacht Club.  No RSVP is required.   Bring your questions, experiences, first mate, crew, and boating friends on the following dates:

 

February 4, 2020 – Docking, Knots, & Line

April 7, 2020 – Communications
