The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary “Flotilla 52” and the River Center in Jupiter have teamed up again for another Boating Safety Class this Saturday, May 18th. The safety classes are aimed for young boaters and teens but all are welcomed to attend the boating safety class.
The classes are taught in a lecture style learning and at the end of the class, those who attend are required to take and pass the boater safety test to receive their Boater Safety Card issued by the State of Florida’s Fish and Wildlife Conversation Commission. The State of Florida requires that any person born after January 1st, 1988, and who wishes to operate a vessel of 10 horsepower or more must pass a Boater’s Safety Course and received their Boater Safety Card.
The classes are provided by the AustinBlu Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting water and boating safety. The class is free to attend, however there is a $10-dollar deposit required to hold your space in the class. The deposit will be returned in full at the end of the day.
The Boating Safety Class starts at 8 am at the River Center and goes until 4 pm. The River Center is located at 805 N. US Highway 1 in Jupiter. For more information and to register for the class, click here.
