A sailing safety class will be offered by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary on 12 consecutive Wednesdays beginning next week.
Classes will start Feb. 24 and run through May 12. Each session, conducted by members of the Perry Lake Flotilla 31-9, will run from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Shawnee North Community Center, 300 NE 43rd St., Topeka.
The cost of classes is $20. Completion of the course may help to lower the cost of maritime insurance, and may be a first step toward joining the Coast Guard Auxiliary.
For more information, call Doug Winebrenner at 842-8717. Other local contacts for boating safety or Coast Guard Auxiliary information are Dave and Pam Chaffee at 842-2779.
