PENSACOLA, Fla., April 10, 2018 – Want to learn the basics of powerboating or brush up on your skills? The nonprofit BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water together with Freedom Boat Club Pensacola offer an affordable and fun ‘Intro to Boating’ course taught aboard 21-foot powerboats on Saturday, April 28, and Sunday, April 29, at the club’s location at 1901 Cypress Street.
Priced at $149 per person and starting at either 9 or 9:30 a.m., the three-hour ‘Intro to Boating’ course covers shifting and steering, basic docking, open-water handling and basic navigation. Class size is limited to three students per vessel, ensuring each student gets sufficient time at the helm.
The goal of the BoatUS Foundation and Freedom Boat Club Pensacola course is to address the high costs typically associated with at-the-helm training, making hands-on boating education more affordable. It also offers area residents the chance to try out recreational boating and give boaters the opportunity to brush up their skills before the summer boating season.
