Boating safety deadline Sept. 15

Time is running out for you to become a safer boater.

As of Sept 15, 2009 everyone operating a powered recreational vessel of any size or type requires a Pleasure Craft Operator’s Card (PCOC).

The PCOC is a first step towards acquiring the skills and know-how to safely operate a motorized vessel in Canadian waters, and a requirement for all operators of powered recreational boats

But according to a press release from the Port Moody Power and Sail Squadron, this card is a legal minimum that doesn’t cover many situations a boat operator and crew will encounter. The more knowledge you have, the safer you and your family are.

For more information on boating safety training, get in touch with Port Moody Power and Sail Squadrons at 604-516-6072 or look them up on the internet at portmoodypss.com.
