Yorkville --  Volunteers from the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary are presenting "About Boating Safely" on Saturday, Feb. 23.   The eight-hour class is open to members of the public.  The presentation will be at the Historic Kendall County Courthouse, 110 West Madison Street, in Yorkville.      There are 5 spots reserved for recent veterans, who must display their military IDs to qualify for a free class.    "About Boating Safely" is the most popular boating safety class in America.  The course shows a colorful power point slide show together with an easy-to-follow textbook.

There is a state law in Illinois that requires teenagers, ages 12-17, to successfully complete a qualified, boating-safety course before driving a power boat or wave runner by themselves.   This class will help recreational boaters to learn the right way to stay safe on the water.  The Coast Guard is making a dramatic effort this year to promote safety education.     "The students really enjoy this class," instructor Dale Polak observed.  "And we would prefer to teach a boater about safety then have to rescue them when in trouble."     To learn more about these US Coast Guard Auxiliary boating classes, contact Bob Allen at 1-630-621-5544.   Other Auxiliary courses are listed at "ChicagoSafeBoating.com   
Lunch is not included.
