Boating safety classes teach important skills


MINOCQUA (WAOW)--Fishing season is here and many people are taking their boats out of storage and hitting the lake. Boating safety classes are teaching students the importance of safety on the water.

The class covers everything from how to properly wear a life jacket, to how to correctly trailer your vessel. The three day course is held twice in a classroom, and then students head to the water to learn how to pilot and safely maneuver a boat.

It's required by law for anyone who wants to operate a boat born after January 1st, 1988.
