Plan Your Summer Cruise Now, With Online Boating Courses That Show You How

While anxiously awaiting next summer’s boating season, boaters may endlessly roam barren marina docks or eerily quiet boat clubs anticipating the return of the season many months away. However, to provide hope for the sun-splashed days of summer, boaters can start planning their summer cruise now with a new online course that shows them how. “Planning Your Cruise” is the newest online course that can be taken from the comfort of a warm home this winter and is offered at through a partnership with United States Power Squadrons (USPS) and the BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water. The cost is $30, while BoatUS and USPS members receive a 20% discount ($24).

Designed to help power and sailboat owners get more out of the trip and prepare for the unexpected, the online seminar is targeted for those who have a limited amount of time for cruising inland or coastal waters – typically a long weekend up to several weeks. It is appropriate for both first-timers as well as more seasoned cruisers, offering all of the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare for a voyage including discussions on crew selection and comfort, meals and provisions, chartering, cruising foreign waters, emergencies, medical care and security.

“Planning for Your Cruise,” which follows “Weather for Boaters,” is the second course of three planned that will, together, replicate the classroom course “Cruising and Cruise Planning.” The Planning for Your Cruise course can be completed at you own pace – started, stopped, and picked up again where you left off at any time. All BoatUS specialized courses may be taken on a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer.

Said BoatUS Foundation Director of Education Amanda Suttles Pérez, “Taking the course now will get you ready for the big trip and keep you happy while winter keeps us inside.”
