The PCOC (Boating 1 Course) makes sure you have immediate navigation and safety skills but it’s just the beginning of what you should know when you get on a boat.

This course combines the material in the Boating 2 (Beyond the PCOC) and Boating 3 (Introduction to Navigation) Canadian Power & Sail (CPS-ECP) courses to provide more in-depth knowledge of boating on local waters.

This course includes global positioning and charts, the magnetic compass, conning, electronic navigation, handling a boat under power, ropes, lines and knots, anchors and anchoring, tides and currents, weather, etc. This course further explores navigation as you learn how to plot and label on paper charts as well as what the skipper should be doing before setting out and when under way, handling a boat under sail as well as your environmental responsibilities and electrical hazards, etc.

Recommended prerequisites: Boating 1 = Boating Basics (Pleasure Craft Operator Card, PCOC)

Price – non-member of CPS-ECP: $365 per person; $157.50 for 2nd person at same address
Price – member of CPS-ECP: $328.50 per person; $141.75 for 2nd person at same address

Squadron Cruises

On Friday April 26, Fraser Squadron held its anual Annual General Meeting and Change of Watch at the Richmond Yacht club.

With attendance by PMD representative Craig Neill and guest speater Lorraine Graves, this years AGM was another success.

A Maritime Mobile Service Identity is a nine-digit number that uniquely identifies your boat, you the owner and your contact information. Each Digital Selective Calling radio needs to be registered and assigned an MMSI number. Your DSC radio can be used to send a distress alert to the Coast Guard and nearby vessels (with DSC radios in receiving range) or to selectively contact another vessel when you know its MMSI number.

If you have relatively new VHF radio in your boat, chances are it is equipped with Digital Select Calling or DSC. The most important feature of a VHF DSC radio is that you can send a Distress Alert which will tell the Coast Guard and other boaters in your area that you require immediate assistance.
