An event every week that begins at 7:00pm on Thursday, repeating until May 2, 2019
The PCOC (Boating 1 Course) makes sure you have immediate navigation and safety skills but it’s just the beginning of what you should know when you get on a boat. This course combines the material in the Boating 2 and Boating 3 Canadian Power and Sail (CPS-ECP) courses to provide more in-depth knowledge of boating on local waters. This course includes global positioning and charts, the magnetic compass, conning, electronic navigation, handling a boat under power, ropes, lines and knots, anchors and anchoring, tides and currents, weather, etc. This course further explores navigation as you learn how to plot and label on paper charts as well as what the skipper should be doing before setting out and when under way, handling a boat under sail as well as your environmental responsibilities and electrical hazards, etc. Recommended pre-requisites: Boating 1 – Boating Basics (PCOC or Operator’s Card).
