On August 25th we held the third and final ABC class for 2018. Using our pool of instructors, we presented 15 topics over the course of the day. At day’s end, all 29 students passed the exam. This brings the total number of ABC graduates in 2019 to 125. My gratitude goes to all the instructors assisting me.
The optional four-hour local knowledge and on-the-water teaching cruise in partnership with Wilmington Water Tours on Sunday August 26 was a huge success. Students practiced real time navigation using charts and visually observing the aids to navigation. They also learned about tides and currents, weather, and local services in between the sightseeing and socializing.
We’ll host ABC classes in February, May, and August 2019. Tell your boating friends to join in; the class is for new boaters and a refresher for old salts. For more information see http://weteachboating.org/
