Flotilla 12-42 of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary will be offering a one night Suddenly in Command course on September 11th; October 16th and November 13th, 2012. Class will be held from 6:30pm-10:00pm at California Yacht Club, 4469 Admiralty Way in Marina del Rey.
Suddenly in Command is designed for those not generally at the helm but onboard often. It will help you “be prepared” in case the Captain suddenly becomes incapacitated or falls overboard. Give yourself and/or your partner the gift of knowing how to keep themselves (and you) safe, in the event of an emergency at sea.
This class covers how to control your boat and call for help, determine and communicate your location, first aid and boat repair kits and how to use them, etc. Also included are descriptions of what causes typical boating mishaps and how to prevent or minimize these, basic boat handling and what equipment should be onboard.
Course fees are $35.00 per person or $45.00 per couple, if paid in advance. Both options include one set of course materials. This class is expected to fill quickly, so reserve your spot today.
