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 building on Hyde Park Street. We also have a Video Library along with many great courses. For a complete schedule of our 2018 seminars and courses in a PDF format click here.
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 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, contact the squadron education officer to determine if the course is still available.
All of our courses and seminars, except ABC, Offshore Navigation, and Celestial Navigation require a minimum of 4 students for the course to be taught. 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.
