The Lake George Association is pleased to announce that we are hosting a boater safety class at our offices on June 8, a Saturday, from 9 AM to 5 PM.
The class will be taught by Marine Patrol officers from the Lake George Park Commission. There is no charge for the class, but there will be a $10 fee paid directly to the New York State Department of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation for permanent certification of students 18 and older.
“The Lake George Association fully encourages anyone who owns or drives a boat to complete this course to keep yourself and everyone else out on the Lake safe,” said Walt Lender, executive director of the Lake George Association.
Among the boater safety information delivered is:
- Required equipment on your boat;
- Navigation rules (including rules specific to Lake George);
- Navigation aids (buoys and markers as well as chart notations);
- Operating your boat so you, your passengers and others on the Lake are safe.
To register, please call the Lake George Park Commission at (518) 668-9347. The class will be held at the LGA office at 2392 State Route 9N, Lake George.
For other classes in the region, please visit the NYS Department of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation at https://parks.ny.gov/recreation/boating/safety-courses.aspx
