Learn boating skill, safety techniques

If you are a boater, or plan to be one, do you know what to do if there is an emergency on the water?

Some of the topics presented will be Boating Emergencies, Know Your Boat, Getting Under Way, Navigating the Waterways, Operating Your Boat Safely, Legal Requirements, Weather, Lines & Knots, and Radio Communications. The class will be taught in six sessions on March 26 and 28, and April 2, 4, 7 and 9. Class times are 7-9 p.m. on week nights and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for Saturday sessions. Register by March 21 to receive course materials prior to the class. The fee is $50, with a $5 discount each for two or more signing up at the same time. Florida Boater Safety Certification Cards are given to individuals who successfully complete the course. All classes are held at the Coast Guard Auxiliary Classroom at Dunedin Marina, 51 Main St., on the second floor. For more information, call Larry O'Brien at (727) 736-1191 or email
