After a successful launch of the US Powerboating-certified Youth Powerboat camps in Rhode Island last year, Confident Captain/Ocean Pros has announced expanded course offerings and locations for 2015. Confident Captain has again partnered with Safe/Sea to offer the powerboat camp.
The Youth Powerboat Camp is a two-day course with both lecture and hands-on based training. Students will operate 17 to 22-foot center console outboard boats with the professional captains at Safe/Sea and Confident Captain/Ocean Pros. Additionally, each camp will have a third day with optional advanced powerboat handling sessions for attendees who want to refine their boating skills even further.
All participants who successfully complete the course will receive a National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) safe boating certificate, a Rhode Island state boating license, and US Powerboating “Start Powerboating Right” certification.
Dates and locations include:
July 6-7, Wickford (With optional advanced boat handling on July 8)
July 13-14, Warwick (With optional advanced boat handling July 15)
July 20-21, South Kingstown (With optional advanced boat handling July 22)
August 3-4, Portsmouth (With optional advanced boat handling August 5)
August 10-11, Tiverton (With optional advanced boat handling August 12)
Confident Captain will also offer this program for marinas and yacht club administrators who would like to host it for their own members. For more information, see confidentcaptain.com/courses/powerboat-camp.
