Instructors Jerry Dzugan and Nick Nickerson led participants in the Alaska Marine Education Association (AMSEA) boating safety course through a packed two days of learning and drills April 21-22 in Juneau. Among the more active sessions were mock use of fire extinguishers, working as teams to plug leaks that mysteriously sprung in a U.S. Coast Guard leak training trailer, and learning how to safely set off flares.
To promote the appreciation of sailing and foster a community and culture committed to advancing both sailing and sailing education in the Juneau area.
The SEAS Board would like to extend an opportunity for all members to participate in a recreational boating, cold water safety and survival course facilitated by the Alaska Marine Safety Education Association (AMSEA) on April 21-22. The weekend course will be held at the UAS Tech Center at 1415 Harbor Way in Juneau. SEAS highly recommends the
class for sailors participating in the Admiralty Island Rally, the Spirit of Admiralty, and other races.
