If you missed one Coast Guard Auxiliary safe-boating course, don't worry. The Magothy River Flotilla is offering another one, beginning Monday, Feb. 24, at Magothy River Middle School on Peninsula Farm Roadin Arnold.
The flotilla will conduct the 13 classes in seven weeks, with sessions running from 7 to 9 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays, through April 6.
For a few hours each evening and a $15 fee to cover materials, you can learn about boat construction and nomenclature, rigging and handling, tying knots and plotting courses.
The Coast Guard Auxiliarycourses became the only ones in town when the state Department of Natural Resources dropped its classes during budget cuts.
For further information, call the flotilla's public education officer at 647-5906.
