Coast Guard Auxiliary to hold boating safety class

Are you looking forward to springtime and the start of boating season? Start preparing now! The U.S.C.G Auxiliary is conducting a nine-hour boating safety course from 6 to 9 p.m. on three consecutive Thursdays beginning on Feb. 10.

Classes will be held at the Gander Mountain Store, 6801 120th Ave., Kenosha.

The course is called About Boating Safely and it’s an exciting and highly interactive boating safety course. Included in ABS is: Introduction to Boating, Boating Laws, Personal Safety Equipment, Safe Boat handling, Navigation, Boating Problems, Tailoring and Storing. The investment is $30/person and $20/person for each additional family member.

Completion of ABS satisfies the Wisconsin DNR requirement for boaters aged 12 to 16 who must have a Boater Safety Certificate to operate a PWC without an adult on board.

Reservations are required and may be made by calling Tim Caufield at 492-6479 or emailing him at
