Coast Guard urges boating caution

Flotilla 15-13 in Crown Point has a boating safely class scheduled for July 9 in Ticonderoga.

For information regarding the class or to receive a courtesy vessel exam, contact Flotilla Staff Officer David Iuliano at 585-7030 or Flotilla Staff Officer John C. Frost at 339-2779.

Following Safe Boating Week and a proclamation from Ticonderoga Supervisor Deb Malaney, Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 15-13 will host a safe boating class for Ticonderoga seventh and eighth grade students June 6 to 10. The classes will be conducted by Coast Guard Instructors at the Ticonderoga Middle School from 3 to 5 p.m. on each day. This is a voluntary course and students must attended all five days to acquire certification which is needed for operation of power craft or PWC.

Supervisor Malaney listed a number of good reasons why everyone should take a boating course. Flotilla 15-13 is planning an adult course for later in the year. Anyone desiring certification should call 585 2128 or 585-9034 for more information and a reservation.
