Valentine's Day gift idea for boaters

With "love in the air" and spring and the boating season just around the corner, the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary offers a Valentine's Day gift idea to help boaters stay safe all year long.

One of the very best gifts you can provide to a boater is to enroll them in a boating safety course. It has been statistically shown that boaters who have taken a boating safety class are far less likely to be involved in a boating mishap or fatality.

Flotilla 30-1 of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary will be offering the About Boating Safely course in the coming months at the Clay County Courthouse Annex, 1901 N.E. 48th Street in Kansas City, Missouri. This course covers a variety of topics including boating laws, safety equipment, safe boating, navigation, boating problems, trailering, and storing and protecting your boat.

To find a date that is convenient and to enroll in this course, please contact us at (816) 682-6552. For information about other services provided by the Coast Guard Auxiliary, visit us online at

The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary is composed of uniformed, non-military volunteer civilians who assist the Coast Guard in all of its varied missions, except for military and direct law enforcement. These men and women can be found on the nation's waterways, in classrooms and on the dock, performing safety patrols, vessel safety examinations and public education.
