It is my pleasure to announce we have been invited to take courses in boating offered by the Sarasota Power and Sailing Squadron (SPSS). We will pay the member price for courses with a charge. Free courses are also being offered. Those of us who have taken these courses in the past have found them to be very worthwhile. Course descriptions are available here, and the course schedule for the coming year can be viewed here.
We are also hosting “Rules of the Road” October 12, 2011 from 7 pm to 9 pm at the Sailing Squadron clubhouse. This course is being taught by Joe Barnette. Joe sails a IP 420 and has taught this course before with excellent results. If you don't know what “New reels catch fish so purchase some” is doing in this message you really should attend.
