Boater safety class offered
May 25, 2009 · Updated 11:30 PM
Ridge Explorations will present a boater education card class from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 13 at the Enumclaw Expo Center fieldhouse.
Washington state law requires operators of watercraft having motors of 15 horsepower or greater to complete a basic boating safety course and obtain a boater education card. The card must be carried with the driver while operating a boat, much like a driver license.
Adventures in Boating Washington is the official Washington State Boating Education Course. This eight-hour course is approved by the National Association of state Boating Law Administrators.
Don Langlois, a U.S. Coast Guard master 100-ton offshore sailor, will be the instructor.
Course topics include knowing a boat, before getting under way, operating a boat safely, legal requirements, boating emergencies and enjoying water sports.
