...SAFE BOATING CLASSES SAVE LIVES...

THE FOLLOWING IS A SAFE BOATING MESSAGE FROM THE UNITED STATES COAST GUARD AUXILIARY 10-6 WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA.

THE US COAST GUARD AUXILIARY FLOTILLA 10-6, WILMINGTON, REMINDS BOATERS TO BOAT SMART FROM THE START BY TAKING A SAFE BOATING COURSE.  MORE THAN EIGHTY PERCENT OF THE PEOPLE WHO DIED IN BOATING ACCIDENTS HAD NOT ATTENDED A SAFE BOATING CLASS.

FLOTILLA 10-6 OFFERS BOATING SKILLS AND SEAMANSHIP, COASTAL NAVIGATION, AND GPS OPERATION COURSES.  ALL COURSES ARE HELD AT THE CAPE FEAR COMMUNITY COLLEGE IN WILMINGTON AND TAUGHT BY QUALIFIED COAST GUARD AUXILIARY INSTRUCTORS. SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THE BOATING SKILLS AND SEAMANSHIP OR THE AMERICA'S BOATING COURSE MAY QUALIFY STUDENTS FOR A REDUCTION OF THEIR MARINE INSURANCE PREMIUMS.  ADDITIONALLY, SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF EITHER COURSE QUALIFIES BOATERS BETWEEN THE AGES OF 13 AND 16 TO OPERATE A PERSONAL WATER CRAFT (I.E., JET SKI) WITHOUT ADULT SUPERVISION IN NEW HANOVER COUNTY.

FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE COURSES GO TO: http://www.uscgaux.org/~0541006/ OR  PHONE (910) 459 9598.
