The local Coast Guard Auxiliary will teach a day-long boating safety class Saturday, and again on April 13 at Cabela’s.
Gary Swenson, flotilla commander, said the volunteer group will cover topics including getting to know your boat, the use of checklists, operating a boat safely, how to handle emergencies on the water and the requirements of legal boating in Kansas.
The Coast Guard-approved course will be recognized in all states, and fulfills the Kansas requirements that those under 21 wanting to operate a power boat or personal water craft without supervision be properly certified.
Swenson said the cost is $17 for individuals or $22 for couples who will share class materials. Registration is at 8:45 a.m. and classes finish at 5 p.m. For more information call 316-788-3994, or e-mail email@example.com.
