The Jupiter area United States Coast Guard presents an “About Boating Safely” class on Sunday, April 23, 2016 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. The boating safely course is sponsored by the AustinBlu Foundation.

There is no disputing that South Floridians enjoy boating.  By the time spring and summer seasons roll around, most Jupiter area residents head out on the gorgeous blue waters.  Whether on the Intracoastal Waterway for a leisurely cruise or out into the sparkling azure waters of the Atlantic Ocean for some deep-sea fishing, Jupiter is a charmed place to live.

The AustinBlu Foundation was established when Austin Stephanos and his good friend were lost at sea last summer. Boating is an enjoyable activity, although it may be treacherous if you are unfamiliar with boating safely.

The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary “Flotilla 52” and the River Center are collaborating to provide Boating Safely Classes targeted specifically to young boaters in our community in the hopes of preventing another tragedy. Partaking in operational boater well-being training is the most important thing young boaters can do to decrease their risk of disaster on the water. Would-be young and adventurous boaters need to understand the dangers of boating in challenging waters like coming in and out of the Jupiter Inlet.

The AustinBlu Foundation, a not-for-profit foundation established in Austin’s name and dedicated to raising awareness and promoting educational programs to improve boater safety are sponsoring the course.  The class is FREE although a $10.00 deposit per student is required to reserve a seat. The deposit will be refunded to all students who successfully complete the tutorial. Satisfactory completion of the class earns a “Florida Safe Boating” card.  Please bring a lunch.  Space is limited and pre-registration is required.  For more information on the boating safely class or to register online please visit rivercenter@LRECD.org  or by calling River Center at (561)743-7123.
