Boat Safety Is Important!
Learning to boat safely is important – the increased knowledge will enhance your safety on the water and your enjoyment of the sport. The Sarasota Power and Sail Squadron offers several safe-boating courses to the public throughout the year at our building on Hyde Park Street. Along with our many great courses we also have a Video Library.
All of our courses and seminars, except ABC, require pre-registration and payment no later than three days before the session begins. If, prior to the course start, you find that you are unable to attend, the registration fee is fully refundable. If the deadline has passed and you wish to take the course, you may contact the course instructor to determine if you can still take the class.
All of our courses require a 3-student minimum to be taught, with the following exceptions: ABC course – no minimum, Offshore Navigation and Celestial Navigation require a minimum of 2 students. ABC has no minimum and Offshore Navigation, and Celestial Navigation require only 2 students to be taught. If, three days before the session is to begin, less than the minimum students have pre-registered, the course or seminar will be cancelled and any paid registration fees will be refunded. Should the student count go below the minimum any time after the pre-registration deadline, including during course instruction, the course may be cancelled or continue at the instructor’s discretion.
