Boat­ing 2: Be­yond Boat­ing Ba­sics

The Plea­sure Craft Op­er­a­tor Card (PCOC) makes sure you have im­me­di­ate nav­i­ga­tion and safety skills, but it’s just the be­gin­ning of what you should know when you get on a boat. In the sec­ond of our Boat­ing se­ries, you are in­tro­duced to the art of nav­i­ga­tion, an­chor­ing, ropes, lines and knots – not to men­tion what to ex­pect when the boat is mov­ing un­der power. This course also has a num­ber of op­tional top­ics that will be taught, de­pend­ing on your in­ter­ests. These in­clude tow­ing, trai­ler­ing and a check­list for lay-up and launch. Sug­gested pre­req­ui­site: Boat­ing 1: Boat­ing Ba­sics (PCOC)

Boat­ing 3: In­tro­duc­tion to Ma­rine Nav­i­ga­tion

The third course in our Boat­ing se­ries ex­plores nav­i­ga­tion fur­ther. You will learn how to plot and la­bel on pa­per charts, what the skip­per should be do­ing be­fore set­ting out and when un­der way, how to han­dle a boat un­der sail, your en­vi­ron­men­tal re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and elec­tri­cal haz­ards. This course also has a num­ber of op­tional top­ics that will be taught, de­pend­ing on your in­ter­ests. These in­clude tides and cur­rents, canals and locks, and col­li­sion reg­u­la­tions.
