    Powerboat Safety Course

    Galati Yacht Sales, Galveston, Texas location, was pleased to sponsor 15 Lakewood Yacht Club teens who took the next step to become safe, responsible boaters this past weekend as they earned their U.S. Sailing Powerboat Safety Certificates.

    “This was a great opportunity to give these kids necessary powerboat training at a time in their lives where they will be joining us out on the water more and more,” said LYC member Duane Guidry. “We owe a special thank you to Galati Yacht Sales which generously financed the two-day, intensive safety course.”

    The class was taught by Margaret Candler and Cassidy Brown from the Sea Star Base Galveston. They included both classroom and on-the-water instruction covering:

    On the water sessions: 

    Engine & electrical systems

    Starting procedures


    Leaving & returning to a slip

    Close-quarters maneuvers


    Steering a range

    Person in-water rescue


    Classroom sessions:


    Safety, preparation & weather

    Maneuvering concepts

    Registration & capacities

    Equipment requirements

    Navigation rules of the road

    Aids to navigation

    Environment regulations



    Participants had to have earned their Texas Boaters Education License and be at least 13 years old. Additionally, both breakfast and lunch were included both days and ended with a certification celebration and social hour Sunday evening.


    Lastly, Lakewood took honor in being able to host this U.S. Sailing-sanctioned event with the help of Galati Yacht Sales. LYC and its members take pride in utilizing best practices to protect the waters of Clear Lake and Galveston Bay. As well as ensuring that members of all ages afford opportunities to learn boat safety and best practices.
