As we continue to fight COVID-19 while respecting the measures of social distancing, we’re also learning how to maneuver everything else virtually.
The Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons / Escadrilles canadiennes de plaisance (CPS-ECP) has taken initiative to offer a combined Boating 2 and 3 course online with the help of Squadrons.
The course will start May 28th which will also include online instructional videos, webinars and personal tutoring sessions.
Boating 2 which is also referred as Beyond Boating Basics focuses on navigation and safety skills. The course is part of our second series of the boating courses. When taking Boating 2, you’ll be able to be familiar with the art of navigation, anchoring lines and knots, as well as learn the practical skills on how to ride a boat.
In addition, this course has bonus courses such as towing, trailering and a check list for layup and launch, they can all be found in the course module.
Boating 3 or Introduction to Marine Navigation is the third of our boating series. It further explains navigation which leads on how to plot and label on paper charts, environmental responsibilities, electrical hazards, etc. Just like Boating 2, Boating 3 also has bonuses courses such as tides and current events, canal and locks and Collison Regulations to enhance your education on boating.
The online Boating 2 and 3 Course starts May 28th and September 29th. Register here.
Remember the more you know, the safer you are.
