As we anticipate spring break and summer vacation, our minds naturally turn to time spent on the beautiful blue waters that make Jupiter a special place. Whether heading out on the open ocean for an epic fishing adventure or up the intracoastal for a leisurely cruise, South Floridians enjoy boating.
While boating can be a fun and relaxing experience, operating a boat, especially for young people, can be dangerous. This issue was brought to light last summer when Austin Stephanos and his good friend were lost at sea.
In hopes of preventing similar tragedies the River Center is collaborating with the US Coast Guard Auxiliary “Flotilla 52” to provide Boating Safely Classes targeted specifically to young boaters in our community.
These classes are provided through a generous sponsorship by the AustinBlu Foundation, a not-for-profit founded in Austin’s name and dedicated to raising awareness and promoting educational programs to improve boater safety. Participating in effective boater safety training is the most significant thing boaters can do to decrease their risk of mishap while on the water. Potential boaters need to understand the dangers of boating in hazardous waters like the Jupiter Inlet.
Although there is no cost for the class, a $10.00 deposit per student is required to reserve a seat. This deposit will be refunded in full to all students who complete the class. Please bring a lunch.
Pre-registration is required because space is limited. Check-in will take place promptly at 8:00, the morning of class. Please register online now!
