The River Center continues to collaborate with the US Coast Guard Auxiliary “Flotilla 52” to provide a series of Boating Safely Classes targeted specifically to young boaters in our community. The River Center is in Burt Reynolds Park on US 1, just north of Indiantown Road in Jupiter.
These virtual classes are provided through a generous sponsorship by the AustinBlu Foundation. The foundation is a not-for-profit dedicated to raising awareness and promoting educational programs to improve boater safety. The mission of the AustinBlu Foundation is “to make available to boaters of all ages the tools and technology which can help prevent near shore and off-shore boating accidents and to improve the chance of survival and recovery, should such accidents occur.”
The AustinBlu Foundation was formed in 2015, in the wake of a tragedy involving two young boaters from Jupiter, Florida, who were lost at sea on July 24th, 2015. Austin Blu Stephanos was one of those boys and the namesake of this foundation.
Recommended for children 12 years and up. Cost is $10.
