Seminar - Tides and Currents - Self Study

Suggested Prerequisite None

Details This online seminar can be started as soon as you receive the link or by going to the course calendar drop down on the main web page and selecting Moodle Login. The Seminar is designed to be done in one sitting of about 90 minuets.  For the safety of  oneself, the boat’s crew and the boat itself, the boater had best be prepared to take tides and currents into consideration when planning a voyage of any length in tidal waters. Failure to do so can result in the vessel’s running aground or, just as embarrassing and damaging, snapping off a mast in a collision with a bridge or utility cable stretched across a tidal river. It is not possible to cover every detail of the subject of tides and currents within the constraints of this seminar, but it will certainly give the student a solid introduction to the subject. To learn more, we highly recommend boaters take the CPS-ECP courses, Boating 4: Near Shore Marine Navigation Level I and Boating 5: Near Shore Marine Navigation Level II. Tides and currents are covered more extensively in those courses.
