As with public education courses, additional member courses may be scheduled based on demand.  The squadron tries to rotate the courses given each year so that both new and continuing members have a choice of courses to maintain their boating and safety skills.

           Courses come alive with on-water practice and the sharing of knowledge & experiences.                                                     Charting                                                                          GPS
