Suddenly in Command

What would you do if you suddenly found yourself responsible for the safe operation of a watercraft? A new 4-hour course may make all the difference.

This short boating safety course is designed for those who are not normally at the helm, but who may be “Suddenly in Command” if the skipper becomes ill, gets injured or falls overboard. The course will include how to be prepared for an emergency, how to minimize mishaps, and how to call for help.

If sufficient public interest is generated, the Coast Guard Auxiliary – Fairhaven Flotilla, instructor Gerald “PJ” Beaudoin will offer the class. The class will be scheduled for May with exact dates and times to be announced.

To express your interest in participating, contact or call 508-758-4191.
