The KLC is once again pleased to announce a NYS Boater Safety Course this fall. This is designed as a comprehensive boating course, teaching the fundamentals of safe boating operation. It is an 8-hour class and anyone over the age of 10 can attend at no cost.

The course will be taught on Sunday, October 26th, at the KLIA Hall, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Please bring a bag lunch. Hot dogs may be available for purchase.

If you are interested in attending, please call 518-784-2011Pre-registration is required.

A copy of the latest edition of the “New York Safe Boating Textbook: A Course on the Safe Operation of Boats and Personal Watercraft” can be downloaded to your computer, phone, or tablet by going to http://nysparks.com/recreation/boating/education.aspx. Hard copy textbooks will be available at the class for those who would like one.

In light of last years legislation requiring all individuals born after May 1, 1996 to successfully complete the NYS Boater Safety Course, this course is critical for anyone under 18 years old who wishes to operate motor powered watercraft. 10-17 year olds will receive a NYS Safe Boater Certificate for free; those 18 or older can receive a certificate if they wish for a $10 fee to NYS.
