    Hi
    I'm replying to an email sent to me by Dominique regarding my RSVP for the Boating Basics Course. I was unable to attend due to a change in my work schedule. Since I have already missed the first module I will have to wait for the next course date. Sorry for not notifying you sooner.

    Hi Levi,
    This course gives you instruction in navigation, charting and plotting. This material applies to both power and sail vessels. It does not tie in directly with a sailing class. Some of the material will be covered in the sailing course. Topics such as chart symbols, aids to navigation, anchoring and lines are covered in both courses. The navigation section goes far beyond what would be taught in a Basic Cruising course.

    Feel free to contct me if you have any further questions.

    Last time I took a Power Squadron course was in the 1970's -- looking forward to this refresher and an opportunity to meet boaters on the west coast.

    Hi everyone, quick question on this: Does this class tie into a sailing class or would it be more appropriate just to wait for a sailing specific class?

    Hi Bruce, You are correct, Jan 14, 21, & 28. Instruction the first two weeks, reveiw and exam on the 28th.

    Succesful completion would give you the Pleasure Craft Operator Card(PCOC).

    So the Basics is Jan. 14, 21, 28? 3 Tuesday nights from 7-10pm?
