Volunteers Teaching Safe Boating!

Sarnia is located in Ontario, Canada on the border with the United States and across the Bluewater Bridge from Port Huron, Michigan.  Members of Sarnia Power and Sail Squadron boat out of the communities of Brights Grove, Camlachie, Corunna, Forest, Grand Bend, Mooretown, Petrolia, Point Edward, Port Franks, Sarnia, Wyoming, Strathroy and much of Lambton County.  Whether powerboat, sailboat, personal watercraft, jet boat or paddler, Sarnia Squadron Members are often found boating on Lake Huron, Lake Erie, and Lake St. Clair as well as the Detroit River and St. Clair River.  Others cruise to the North Channel, Georgian Bay, the Trent-Severn Waterway and Lake Ontario.  Local marine facilities to Sarnia include: Bridgeview Yachting Centre, Sarnia Bay Marina, Sarnia Yacht Club and Lake Huron Yachts.

Course/Manual Description

The best of the Canadian Coast Guard "accredited" study guides available.

This highly acclaimed manual has been used as the template by other organizations in their rush to develop course material to meet the Government Regulations for operator competency. It was one of the first to be accredited by the Canadian Coast Guard and contains all the information needed to achieve operator competency and a Pleasure Craft Operator Card. A leader in its field, the Boat Pro Manual is a great introduction to the boating safety and navigation information available in the Boating Course. Successful candidates may apply for CPS Associate Membership with its specific benefits.

Boat Pro contains a self-test quiz for home study, is available on the Internet, or in an eight-hour instructional format from Sarnia Squadron.
