The Lake Norman boating season is fast approaching and there is still time to attend a Boating Safety Class required for all boat operators born after January 1, 1988 (and recommended for all other boaters). The Lake Norman Sail & Power Squadron asks for your support in communicating the attached press release to inform your readers, fleet members, boating associates, and families of the next class on April 15, 2017 and the remaining classes in May & June. Since venues are limited in size, early registration is recommended and all registrations must be done on line at our website: www.usps.org/lakenorman. We urge distribution of this information no later than April 1, 2017.
Thanks for your continued support of the public service provided by the Lake Norman Sail & Power Squadron, a unit of the United States Power Squadron.”
Lake Norman Sail & Power Squadron Continues its 2017 Safe Boating Class Program
The Lake Norman Sail & Power Squadron (LNSPS) is pleased to continue its Boater Safety Education Program for 2017 with three classes remaining scheduled for April, May & June.
The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission requires that “Vessel operators born on or after January 1, 1988 must have successfully completed a Boating Safety Education course to operate a vessel with a motor of 10 horsepower or more.” Education Officer, Russ Klein of the LNSPS anticipates higher enrollment driven by increasing boating injuries, fatalities and law enforcement presence on the water. In addition, the population of boaters required to have taken this class grows every year, thus increasing demand. Parents and children (at least 10 years old) are encouraged to attend together.
Remaining 2017 Class Schedule:
Saturday, April 15, 2017 at Lake Norman Volunteer Fire Department (1518 Brawley School Rd, Mooresville, NC). Class limited to 40 students.
Saturday, May 13, 2017 at Huntersville United Methodist Church (14005 Stumptown Rd., Huntersville, NC). Class limited to 50 students.
Saturday, June 17, 2017 at Mt Zion United Methodist Church (19600 Zion Street, Cornelius, NC). Class limited to 70 students.
Cost is $45.00 ($25 for those sharing a student manual) which includes the Student Manual, classroom instruction, exam, certificate, photo ID, reporting & archiving course completions and lunch. Early registration is encouraged due to space limitations.
All classes run from 8:00am to 5:00pm
You must register and pay online at www.usps.org/lakenorman
