The US Coast Guard and the Ipswich Harbor Master have teamed up to bring the residents of Ipswich a boating safety course that will provide a great foundation for a Summer of fun on the water! Kids ages 12-15 who operate boats and teens 16-17 who operate personal water craft will fulfill their Massachusetts Boater Education requirement in this course. Attendees will learn about safe navigation, communication skills, weather information, personal water safety and how to handle an emergency situation on the water.
This is a twelve session course that will meet every Tuesday evening at Ipswich Town Hall. Participants that successfully complete the course will receive a certificate of completion from the USCG Auxiliary and the Massachusetts Environmental Police.
Proceeds from these classes will go to further safe boating initiatives in the town of Ipswich!
