Re: Boating safety classes
I took the free Boat/US course online - relatively fast and painless from the safety of my home: Free BoatUS Foundation Online Boating Safety Course
I am not sure why anyone pays for sailing lessons when there are so many books, free resources, and people looking for crew.
The Coast Guard Auxiliary is wonderful as is the Power Squadron, the exceptions to that advice. I took their boating safety class for a small fee 20 years ago to lower my insurance.
