Cape Fear Sail and Power Squadron, a chapter of the United States Power Squadrons, offers the Piloting Course.  This is the first course in the sequence of courses on navigation, covering the basics of coastal and inland navigation.  This course focuses on navigation as it is done on recreational boats today and embraces GPS as a primary navigation tool while covering enough of traditional techniques so the student will be able to find his/her way even if their GPS fails.  The course includes many in-class exercises, developing the student's skills through hands-on practice and learning.  Eight classes of two hours each are scheduled for presentation of this course.  In addition the students have seven days to complete the open book exam.  The cost is $65.00. The dates are every Thursday from June 11 to July 30, 6:30pm - 8:30pm at the Cape Fear Community College, Room U528.  To find out more about this course and other boating education opportunities and sign up, please go to www.capefearsailandpowersquadron.org .
