Lackawanna Sail & Power Squadron will be offering two seminars at the South Orange Maplewood Adult School:  "Partner In Command" and "How To Use a Chart."

Partner in Command will be offered November 3rd, and How To Use a Chart will be offered November 17th.  Both run from 7:00 to 9:00 PM.

Partner in Command provides an introduction to boating for crew members who need basic information and who may or may not have taken a boating course. It is designed to provide essential information that one may require to assist a skipper in the safe operation of a recreational boat. Included in the seminar are actions in response to emergencies.

How To Use a Chart provides information essential to your safety. Even with GPS and electronic navigation, it is necessary to know how to read a chart to know what lies below the surface of the water. You will learn about chart features, chart scales, aids to navigation, latitude and longitude and planning your course. A waterproof guide is included.
