As of January 1, 2020, all boaters age 35 and younger who operate a boat, including sailboats, on state waterways will need to have a California Boater's Card.
This is a lifetime card to show proof of passing an approved boater safety exam.
Information on the card can be found here - www.CaliforniaBoaterCard.com
A self study course is available - http://dbw.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=28734#homeStudy
As well, the club is looking into hosting classes at Fiddlers Cove provided with US Power Squadron.
