Boating Safety is Relevant

It is not possible to ever have too much knowledge and you should be commended for taking a boating safety course. Some of the information you learn may not seem useful to you during the class, but you never know when a bit of knowledge could turn out to be vital. I started my formal training as a young Naval Officer and learned how to "Con" and navigate big ships at sea. Then years later my wife, kids, and I took a small craft safety course with the U.S. Power Squadron. Later yet, my wife and I took a number of classes focused on kayaking. In each instance, I learned and still feel like a novice at times. Learn as much as you can. Boating in small craft, especially human powered craft, is more mental than physical. The more you know the better off you will be. Remember to have fun too.
