Greenwich One-Day Safe Boating Courses for Spring 2020
Once again, the Greenwich Squadron will be offering two Safe Boating Courses in the Spring. This class qualifies you for your Connecticut Safe Boating Certificate and also enables you to obtain the PWC/”Jet Ski” certificate. Emphasizing boating safety, topics include: life jackets; fire extinguishers; distress signals; operator responsibilities; boating regulations; fueling; boating courtesy; basic rules of navigation; buoys; sound signals; navigation lights, shapes, and sounds; boat registration; and environmental considerations. Our course is offered in conjunction with the Greenwich Marine Police.
The one-day course will be offered twice: First on Saturday April 18 and again on Saturday May 2. Both courses will be held at the Greenwich Police Station. For more details, contact Andy Cummings at GreenwichSquadron@gmail.com.
Dinner ~ Drinks ~ Prizes
For the first time we will have great music at our holiday party. Our favorite DJ Pierre will play soft music while we chat with fellow boaters over the tasty hors d’oeuvres and delicious meal and then move onto some good music for dancing.
Your Executive Committee is also planning a few fun surprises involving prizes – all will be revealed on the night.
