Chair: Larry Ligon
Co-Chair: Gwen Cauthren

Event Overview:
Can you optimally drag the rope handle to a downed skier?  Know where the brakes are? Properly pull a skier, boarder or surfer out of the water? Know your duties as a crew member? Almost none of these course materials are covered in the Calif. Boating Card/License or Coast Guard Courses.

Experts will show you what to do, how to drive and pull skiers safely in almost any situation on the water.  Emphasis is placed on driving and crewing on the Delta. 

This is a hands-on course that puts you in the driver's seat after a morning of classroom instruction and shows you how to master everything from parallel parking, skier guidelines, driver etiquette, towing skiers, surfers & boarders, crew member responsibilities, rules of the “water” and avoiding dangerous situations.


The club strongly encourages any member who either wants to drive or crew on a boat to attend this clinic to obtain up-to-date training.  If you would like to gain the skills necessary to drive for the club, brush up your boating skills, or just learn to be a better boat hand, come join us. It is a fun, low-cost, learning experience, providing valuable skill building and enhancement of your boating safety. 

Event Details: 
Spend Friday 5/31 on the water at Larry & Gwen’s home in
Discovery Bay for this informative course that offers increased confidence & awareness.  4 hours of classroom instruction will be followed (after a lunch break) by 4 hours of driving practice on the water with expert instructors.
