Cape Fear Sail & Power Squadron will hold its America’s Boating Course® Feb. 23-24, 2019. The course is one day of classroom instruction followed by a private four-hour on-the-water teaching cruise in partnership with Wilmington Water Tours.
The classroom instruction is fast-paced and fun and will be held on Saturday, Feb. 23 at Cape Fear Community College. Topics covered address basic navigation, rules of the road, docking, trailering, anchoring, radio communications, safety gear and more.
Then, on Feb. 24, students can take a cruise down the Cape Fear River into the Intracoastal Waterway and back where dolphins and freighters are often spotted. The cruise enhances topics covered in class and adds discussions on chart reading, tides, currents, and weather.
Certified instructors with years of boating experience and local knowledge teach the course. In addition, the class satisfies the North Carolina boating education requirements for those born after January 1, 1988.
