Boating 2 - Beyond Boating Basics
More than your Boating Licence

Suggested Prerequisite Boating 1 – Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC)

Details 5 - 6 weeks, one evening per week

The PCOC makes sure you have immediate navigation and safety skills but it’s just the beginning of what you should know when you get on a boat. In the second of our Boating Series, you are introduced to the art of navigation, anchoring, ropes, lines and knots – not to mention what to expect when the boat is moving under power. This course also has a number of optional topics that will be taught depending on your interests; these include towing, trailering and a check list for layup and launch.

Additional Information

Before you sign up for this course please consider enrolling in our B2+B3 Combo course which has further FINANCIAL DISCOUNTS that Members and Non Members can enjoy rather than enrolling in each course individually. Check it out! We will allow students up to 2 years to complete both courses due to the pandemic. This course will be offered on-line via gotomeeting. Enjoyment and Safety on the water requires knowledge. Beyond Boating Basics will take you to the next level in your Boating Education. Technology has changed the way we navigate, but in order to use a Chartplotter/GPS effectively you need to understand how to use paper charts. This course will teach you how to read the symbols and signage on the charts and how to use this information when Navigating by observing landmarks and Navigation Aids. You will learn how to tie knots, handling a boat under power, basics of weather and anchoring, and a review of collision prevention regulations You will also learn how convert your Compass course to a Magnetic course, then to a True course, and how to apply that knowledge to your course planning on a chart. This course incorporates videos, and lectures. Since this course is on-line, we are willing to add some seminars, so the students can better understand difficult sections of the course. The need for seminars will be determined during the course. Course will run on the following dates: Wednesday January 13, 2021 Wednesday January 20, 2021 Wednesday January 27, 2021 Wednesday February 03, 2021 Wednesday February 10, 2021 Wednesday February 17, 2021 The on-line exam is open book and is on Wednesday February 24, 2021.
