FIRST ANNUAL VESSEL SAFETY CHECK &

 SEMINAR WEEKEND EVENT

APRIL 28, 2012

Bellevue Sail & Power Squadron will conduct FREE Vessel Safety Check’s for the Newport Yacht Club, Newport Yacht Basin Marina and  Bellevue Yacht Club. The event will be held at the Marina docks located at 3911 Lake Washington Blvd. SE, Bellevue, WA 98006.   BSPS Offers Vessel Safety Checks which is a Free Check of a Vessel’s Equipment for Compliance with Federal and State Safety Requirements.

The Vessel Examiners performing this service have been trained to look for some of the common problems which might occur in your boat, tender or water craft or its associated safety equipment.  VSC will be conducted every half hour starting at 9am to 4pm.  If you pass you will receive a VSC sticker to put on your boat which is good for one year.  Boaters must register in advance with your Yacht Club or Marina Association prior to the Saturday event.

A free Seminar will also be held for this event called Boat Handling Under Power which shows boaters how to depart and dock under a variety of conditions as well as all about trimming the boat underway. This Seminar, taught by Dave Greene, SN  is intended to acquaint you with the characteristics of boating at relatively slow speeds, in close quarters, and while maneuvering in and out of docking situations. Procedures for use of lines and the impact of currents, tides and winds are also covered.  This One and a Half hour Seminar will be held at the Bellevue Yacht Basin Marina at 1pm.  A Practical On-the-Water training session will begin at 3pm for those interested in the practical application of what was discussed in the Seminar.

Lunch provided by Bellevue Power Squadron will be on the deck outside Bellevue Yacht Clubhouse.
