Boating Essentials


You can’t get where you’re going if you don’t know how to get there. CPS has been offering boating courses long before they were mandatory. This course continues where the Boating Basics course stops and offers instruction in navigation, charting, plotting and an introduction to electronic navigation.

Topics include: the magnetic compass, global positioning and charts, navigation, conning, plotting, digital charting, anchoring, lines and ropes, electrical hazards, towing, boating and the environment, and more.

Duration: 8-10 weeks, 1 night per week

The new Boating Essentials course, coming this fall. Together, Boating Basics and Boating Essentials will replace the Boating Course.
