Confident Captain/Ocean Pros teamed up with Safe/Sea to offer 2015 Youth Powerboat Camps in Rhode Island.
After launching last year, the U.S. Powerboating-certified Youth Powerboat camps will be expanded this year.
The Youth Powerboat Camp is a two-day course with lecture and hands-on-based training. Students will operate 17- to 22-foot center console outboard boats with the captains at Safe/Sea and Confident Captain/Ocean Pros.
Additionally, each camp will have a third day with optional advanced powerboat handling sessions for attendees who want to further refine their boating skills.
All participants who successfully complete the course will receive a National Association of State Boating Law Administrators safe boating certificate, a Rhode Island state boating license and US Powerboating Start Powerboating Right certification.
