Boating classes start

The Magothy River Flotilla 18 of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary has begun boating classes for county residents.

The 13 lessons are being offered on consecutive Monday and Thursday evenings from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Magothy River Middle School Auditorium, off College Parkway on Peninsula Farm Road, across from Anne Arundel Community College.

Students pay $15 for a textbook and a workbook, and family members may share textbooks, said Ann Meyer, the flotilla's secretary.

This is the 30th year that the flotilla, based in Arnold, has offered the boating classes to teach skills, safety and seamanship.

The course also provides an overview of the rules and fundamentals of safe boating. Students will become familiar with everything from boat construction to safety equipment.

The Maryland Boating Safety Education Law requires that all boat operators born after July 1, 1972, successfully complete this or a similar course, Ms. Meyer said.
