America's Boating Course
The Marblehead Sail & Power Squadron is offering America’s Boating Course designed to provide essential safety and seamanship information to the boating public. It is suitable for the beginner and a good refresher for experienced boaters after a winter off the water. The course also satisfies the criteria for the Massachusetts Boaters Safety Certificate required for young boaters.
The course will be conducted on Wednesday evenings, May 8 – June 19, from 7:00 – 9:00 PM at the Marblehead VFW, 321 West Shore Drive. It consists of four two hour sessions and an exam followed by two additional sessions covering charting and navigation.
The cost including textbook and CD is $60. Pre-registration is required so we can ensure each student receives course materials.
To learn more about this course, please visit our public courses page. If you have questions, please contact course chair Skip Whittaker, JN or leave a message on the MSPS message line 781-968-5027 and a member will contact you.
