It’s still winter, but you may already be thinking about warm days and boating on New Hampshire’s beautiful lakes. If you don’t already have a New Hampshire Boating Education Certificate or one of the other forms of boating certificate accepted by the State of New Hampshire (see website link below for a list), you need to get one. Everyone 16 years of age and older who operates a motorboat over 25 horsepower on New Hampshire waters must have a boating education certificate. The Sunapee Police Department is partnering with NH Marine Patrol to offer TWO opportunities to attend the New Hampshire Boating Education Course here in Sunapee. The course will be offered on Saturday, June 8th, and again on Saturday, July 20th and will be held at the Sunapee Safety Services Building from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. So choose the date you would like to attend and you will earn your boating education certificate on the day of the class.
You MUST pre-register on-line by going to: www.nh.gov/safety/divisions/nhsp/fob/marine- patrol/boating-education/. Approximately halfway down the webpage, you will see the link “Search and register for boating education class”. Scroll until you see the date(s) of the Sunapee class, select either June 8th or July 20th, and complete the information as requested. Seating for each class is limited to 18. On the day of your class, you must bring a valid I.D. and your lunch.
For any questions, contact the Sunapee Police Department at 603-763-5555.
