America's Boating Course (ABC) is a course for all boaters including skippers of a family cruiser, sailing enthusiasts, personal watercraft (PWC) operators, hunters or fishermen operating an outboard utility boat, and canoe and kayak paddlers. The course meets all of the requirements of the CT DEEP for its Certificate of Personal Watercraft Operations.
It covers the basics you need to know to safely and legally operate your boat, such as basic boating terminology, boat handling, water sports safety, PWCs, new requirements for the State of CT towing rules, legally required equipment and other boating laws and regulations, right-of-way rules between boats, and marine radio operation.
The manual you will get includes the material in our 8 week course (the fundamentals of reading nautical charts, of using a chart to plot and follow a safe course, and the basics of using a Global Positioning System (GPS) for navigation) but these subjects are not able to be covered in the one day course.
