Due to Covid-19 we have had to revise our course offerings to comply with OCC guidelines. This course combines our Introduction to Twinscrew Powerboats with the US Powerboating Basic Powerboat Cruising Certification w/ CA Boatercard.

With coaching from a powerboat expert you will gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to responsible operate a 26-40' Twin-Screw powboat in light to moderate conditions. The course will start with a practical introduction to boat handling and safe powerboat operation, and includes both hands-on instruction and theory to expand your seamanship knowledge and practical boat handling skills. 

Course topics include boat systems, engine and helm controls, docking and close quarter maneuvering, boat control in open water, anchoring, emergency procedures, VHF radio operation, charts and aids to navigation. 

This course is approved by NASBLA and US Powerboating.  Students who pass the written test and successfully complete the knowledge and skill requirements (see Certification Standards book) will receive a US Powerboating Basic Powerboat Operation and Cruising Certification and be eligible to apply for the California Boater Card - www.californiaboatercard.com.

Course materials along with pre-course homework will be available to students ahead of time to allow you ample time to prepare for your class.
