Do you have a youngster who wants to get their official NY State Boater's Safety Certification? Well, you have to pay attention to this important change made to the schedule to do so. The training course for kids 10-17 will now only be offered one day.

The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and New York Sea Grant have announced a change in the Young Boater Safety Certification training course offered annually at the Central New York Boat Show. Instead of the class being spread out over the course of the weekend it will be offered entirely on one day, Saturday, February 20, from 9am to 5pm, at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse, NY. With this certification kids from 10-17 will be able to legally operate a motorized watercraft or boat on their own. To register your youth for the class call The New York Sea Grant @ 315.312.3042. The CNY Boat Show is taking place from 1pm to 9pm on Thursday, February 18 and Friday, February 19, 10am to 9pm on Saturday, February 20, and 10am to 5pm on Sunday, February 21 in three buildings at the NYS Fairgrounds.
