Boating classes are conducted free of charge [there is a nominal fee for materials] to the general public for both Sailboating and Powerboating. These classroom-based lessons are offered at various times during the year in both refresher versions lasting 6 weeks and more intensive versions of approximately 12 weeks duration.

In addition, 5 week classes are offered for young boaters (ages 10-17) through which the young boater can earn the NY State Young Boater's Certificate, without which it is illegal for a youngster to operate a power boat alone.

A Vessel Safety Check (VSC) is a free examination of your boat usually conducted at various marinas and other sites in the area. Your boat will be well examined by one of our specially trained Coast Guard Auxiliarists and you will be provided with a report of your vessel's compliance with U.S. Coast Guard regulations regarding boating safety features and equipment.

There is no penalty at all if your boat fails to meet full compliance. You will simply be given a report listing the deficiencies found, along with encouragement to make corrections on your own and be retested at some convenient time in the future.

For further information on how you can get your boat examined by one of the Safety Examiners here in Auxiliary Division 18, please send E-mail to Division 18 VSC Coordinator.
