On Saturday, March 31st and Sunday, April 1st, 2012 the Marine Trades Association of Maryland and the Annapolis School of Seamanship will present a Power Safety Through Seamanship course in conjunction with the 33rd annual Annapolis Safety-at-Sea Seminar.
The two-day course will include an interactive portion especially tailored to the needs and interests of motor boaters. Saturday focuses on large group seminars and discussions, plus the exciting live U.S. Coast Guard on-the-water helicopter rescue, life raft and signal flare demonstrations. The day concludes with an opportunity to visit with the presenters at the evening reception. Sunday involves an option for more hands-on training where participants can simulate an abandon ship scenario by getting into their choice of gear/PFDs and jumping into a pool, swimming to an inflated life raft and hauling themselves into the raft. Other options include engine repair, systems and navigation.
Featured in the combined seminar are Ocean Prediction Center Meteorologist, Joe Sienkiewicz, Dr. Dan Carlin will present a medical information forum, and special guest RADM Mark Buzby will address Worldwide Maritime Safety and Security.
As a special introductory rate, tickets are $200 – and space is limited to 50 attendees. For additional ticket and event information contact the Marine Trades Association of Maryland, P.O. Box 3148, Annapolis MD 21403 on the web www.mtam.org or by telephone at 410-269-0741.
