Flotilla 29 of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, Lake Lanier, announces a one-day, seven-lesson “About Boating Safely” course.  The course is scheduled for Saturday, September 17. The course also serves as a PWC certified course for children under the age of 16. The course will be given at the Coast Guard Auxiliary Operations Center, 6595 Lights Ferry Rd., Flowery Branch, on the left just before the entrance to Aqualand Marina. Classes run from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., and cost is $35.  Discounts are available for additional family members.

State law now requires any person born after January 1, 1998, must have completed a boater education course approved by the Ga. DNR before he or she may legally operate a motorized vessel on Georgia state waters. Successful completion of this course could result in a reduction in your boat’s insurance premium.

• Before you get underway
• Navigating the waterways
• Operating your vessel safely
• Legal requirements of boating

Shore Sweep, put on by the Lake Lanier Association, focuses on 12 participating locations around the lake and nearby shorelines: Aqualand Marina, Clarks Bridge Park, Gainesville Marina, Holiday Marina, Lake Lanier Islands, Sunrise Cove Marina, War Hill Park, Bald Ridge Marina, Port Royale Marina, Gwinnett Park Balus Creek Boat Ramp and Big Greek Boat Ramp.

The event is from 8 am - 1 pm. Volunteers should report to a participating location to pick up trash bags and a shoreline-area assignment for trash collection. All volunteers turning in at least one full bag of trash receive a T-shirt. Many of the sites will provide snacks or other festivities.

Advance registration for the event is NOT required, but it does help in scheduling shoreline coverage. If you would like to participate, please send an email to lakeinfo@lakelanier.org.
