“Adventures in boating” classes planned soon



The Clark County Sheriff’s Office, in conjunction with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and the Fort Vancouver Power Squadron, will offer three separate Adventures in Boating courses for Washington boaters seeking their boater education cards.

The eight-hour course will provide the basics of safe boating that all recreational boaters should know.

This course was developed specifically for the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission and is taught by officers who are certified by the agency.

There are three Saturdays to choose from: Feb. 25, March 24 and March 31. All classes will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Clark County Operations Center, 4700 N.E. 78th Street in Vancouver.

Seating is limited and families are encouraged to attend. The course fee is $10, and the Adventures in Boating manual and exam will be provided at the class.

For more information or to reserve a seat, contact Deputy Todd Baker at 360-397-2106 or email todd.baker@clark.wa.gov.
