THIS MONTH ON BoatUS.com
ALL YOUR BEST BOATING VIDEOS
Have you seen our new BoatU.S. Magazine video
page? Along with the current video or slide-show featured on our home page, you can check
back on some of the great videos you might have
missed. And don’t forget our newsbox! We update
it several times a week with all the best and most
important boating stories from around the Web.
SIMULATE THE REAL THING
Turn off the Angry Birds (for the fogies among
us, that’s the wildly successful video game that’s
all the rage) and check out our Boating Simulator
instead. Created to assist you in learning the
aids to navigation, test your knowledge of nautical rules of the road, and challenge you with a
fun virtual 3-D boating experience, you can even
practice docking. Careful, don’t get hooked now!
GET YOURSELF CERTIFIED!
There’s hardly a better time to study for your
officially recognized boating exam than during
the season you’re likely to be doing less boating.
The BoatU.S. Foundation’s free, interactive, non-proctored course and exam have been approved
by the National Association of State Boating Law
Administrators (NASBLA) and is recognized by
the U.S. Coast Guard as exceeding the minimum
requirements for the National Recreational Boating
Safety Program. (Note: The course is approved in
most, but not all, states.) Also, learn how to prepare
for your next sailing lesson online on page 25.
