The Mashpee harbormaster, in conjunction with the Massachusetts Environmental Police, will offer a free safe boating course on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, August 12 to 14, from 9 AM to noon at the Mashpee Public Library.
Participants who successfully complete the course will be issued a safe boating certificate and will be given a laminated wallet card. Attendance is required on all three days to receive the certificate.
Completion of the course will allow youths between the ages of 12 and 15 to legally operate a motorboat and youths ages 16 and 17 to operate a personal watercraft. Certification may also reduce the insurance premium on a boat.
The minimum age to attend is 12. Class size will be limited to 25 students.
