One of the goals of our fishing club is to help Women feel more comfortable on the water. This is a first time offered class to help those of you who considered getting a boat but were hesitant to take on the challenge for what ever reason. Maybe you didn’t feel comfortable at the Helm or backing up the boat and trailer in the water. We can change that with our Boating Basics class.
During the class we will talk about anatomy of a boat, boating safety, launching and loading, basic boat maintenance, driving a boat, and more. You will actually get to get in a vehicle and back the boat up in our practice area where the cones will be placed.
Once you feel comfortable we will go next door to the boat launch and actually do it for real. Once on the water you can take the helm, and before long you will catch the boating bug like the rest of us. Whether you want to fish from a boat or take the kids tubing you will get the basic skills you need to get started. The instructors for the class are female veteran boaters who are members of WI Women Fish.
The fee for the class includes a membership in our Fishing Club and lunch. Class size is limited and will be held rain or shine. We have the Park Shelter reserved. Look for the banners. Class fee is $50. To register complete the registration form on the web site and submit it with payment. Fee for members of WI Women Fish is $25. Note: The class end time is approximate depending on how many sign up. We want everyone to leave with a comfort level so they can get out there on their own.
