This year promises to be an exciting year with a variety of boating education courses!
We will be offering a variety of courses and seminars at several different venues. Keep your eye on the Anchor Watch and our webpage for announcements and updates. We also advertise in The Capital, Spinsheet and Proptalk.


The following list is what is being planned for classes- dates and times will be worked out closer to the course. If you would like to add your name to a class list for any of the offerings, please use the ASPS registration link below to make a reserved seat now. You may cancel your reservation at a later date, but putting in your name early gives me approximate numbers to facilitate ordering materials. Remember that course offerings are most likely going to be either Tuesday or Wednesday evenings. Seminar dates will vary. To suggest an additional course or seminar offering, please contact me.
