This course is recommended for women who are interested in boating; who may be married to a boater, yet feel they are just there to provide the lunch; women who go out as passengers on other people’s boats; or who may be anxious about boating altogether and would rather leave boating up to the men!
Confidence in Boating is instructed by women from Flotillas of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary who have enthusiasm and experience with boating and want to help others who “ride” on boats to know what to do if the boat captain should fall overboard or become incapacitated and they will need to be “suddenly in command”! Through discussion and hands on training, we encourage women to voice their concerns and help them build confidence by learning some basics of boating such as using the radio to call for help, stopping the boat, turning the vessel around, and bringing someone back into the boat if there is a “man overboard”! We also share information on boating concerns such as dealing with fear and improving communication with your boating partner.
