The Peconic Bay Power Squadron will present “Boat Handling Under Power”, part of the USPS University seminar series, at 9:00am on 19 May 2018 at Strong’s Marine in Mattituck. Attendees will learn techniques for controlling their boats in various situations and under a variety of wind or tidal conditions. The classroom seminar will be followed by an On the Water exercise using boats provided by Strong’s Marine. (Class size is limited, so advance registration is required.)

With many different types of boats, drive systems, weather conditions, sea conditions, boating circumstances and more, no two boating situations are exactly the same. Understanding these variations is the first step in being prepared to handle what life on the water throws your way. The Boat Handling Under Power seminar covers using lines to assist you; close quarters maneuvering; departing & docking; single screw, twin screw or jet drives; steering in reverse and much more. Learn some new skills for the summer season and even have the opportunity to try them on the water.

Strong’s Marine is located at 2400 Camp Mineola Road in Mattituck. There is a $35.00 fee which includes a waterproof quick guide and presentation note book. Students should register on line at www.pbps.us/education/schedule before 28 April. To learn more or to reserve your space, call Vince Mauceri at 631-725-3679 or visit www.PBPS.us
