The KLC is once again pleased to announce that it has organized a NYS Boater Safety Course for this coming spring, sponsored by the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office and the New York State Park Police. It 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 Saturday, June 7th, at the KLIA Hall, from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Please bring a bag lunch as there will only be about 30 minutes for lunch.

If you are interested in attending, please call 518-784-3024. Pre-registration is required no later than June 6th. A minimum of 10 attendees are required or the class will be cancelled.

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 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 all 10-18 year olds this year. Last year’s course was attended by over 40 individuals, and we expect this year’s course will be equally well attended. Hope to see you there.
