AMSEA is conducting a Boating Without the Boys class in Sitka, Alaska. “Boating Without the Boys” teaches women the skills and confidence required to operate a small vessel or to assist in an emergency. The workshop is suited to inexperienced boaters, experienced boaters that are new to Alaskan waters, or women that have relied on the boating skills of a companion. The course length varies, as this basic course can be tailored to the needs and desires of groups such as teenage boaters, hunters who boat in winter conditions, kayakers, etc.

Topics in this class may include:

Float plans
