Adventures in Boating Class

The US Coast Guard Auxiliary will offer the Washington Basic Boater Education Course on San Juan Island at Skagit Valley College, San Juan Center. Everyone wishing to learn or share their safe boating skills and review our local boating regulations is invited to attend.

All Washington residents must carry a Boater Education Card while on the water operating a power-boat greater than 15 horsepower. This includes people over 12 years of age and born after January 1, 1955.

Upon successful completion of the course, attendees may submit a copy of their individual “Certificate of Accomplishment” with $10 for a Boater Education Card from the Washington State Parks & Recreation Commission.

By getting your card, you help to ensure that our waterways are the safest they can be. You may also be able to reduce your boating insurance costs.

Date:            March 3, Saturday
Time:           8:30 AM – 4:00 PM     
Location:   Skagit Valley College, 221 Weber Way, SJI
Cost:            Free. Bring sack lunch & beverage. Coffee provided
