WA Sea Grant Workshops

Norris Comer Education

Captain GuyThe excellent work continues with educational workshops for boaters, thanks to local partnerships with Washington Sea Grant. For April, Washington Sea Grant teams up with the Kingston Cove Yacht Club to offer a U.S. Coast Guard-approved “First Aid at Sea” course.

Topics include CPR, patient assessment, hypothermia treatment, and many more skills that could save a life someday. The class is scheduled for Friday, April 27, from 09:00 to 17:00 hours at the yacht club (25878 Washington Blvd. NE, Kingston, Washington). Cost is $100; $50 for commercial fishermen.

Registration is required due to limited space. If interested, contact Sarah Fisken at sfisken@u.washington.edu or call 206-543-1225.
