The Town of Winchester Recreation Department is sponsoring a 1-day combination Safe Boating and Personal Watercraft Safety Certification on Sunday, April 8, 2018. The eight-hour class will be held at the playground building at 75 Rowley Street from 8:30AM to 4:30PM. Cost is $65 for residents and $75 for non-residents. Participants must be pre-registered by April 1, 2018.
The course is a complete, updated safe boating certification course, including the newest requirement for towing skiers & tubes. Successful completion will allow the student to purchase a Connecticut Certificate of Personal Watercraft Operation, which enables them to operate recreational vessels up to 65 feet in length including Jet Skis. An easy to understand classroom format is designed for students age 12 and over. Prior to taking the class, each student should create an account online at ct.outdoorcentral.net and click the START button. Create an account if you don’t already have one, and then print the page that includes your Conservation ID number and bring it to class.
