DNR Boating Safety Classes Offered in June

Boaters born on or after Jan. 1, 1989, are required by Wisconsin law to pass a safe boating course to legally operate a power-driven boat, including a personal watercraft. The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary encourages boaters to take a safe boating class and have a free vessel safety check.

The local auxiliary unit will present a two-day Wisconsin Department of Natural Resource (DNR) Boating Safety Classes on June 22-23, 12:30 – 6:30 pm, at the Sister Bay Fire Station, 2258 Mill Rd. The course covers boating terminology, safe boat handling (including personal watercraft), paddle sports, federal and state regulations, and aids to navigation. A Wisconsin DNR warden will also present materials and be available for questions.

To sign up or to make an appointment for a free vessel safety check, contact Kathy at 920.327.1677 or email [email protected].
