U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Classes

Free Boating Course on Knots and Lines

Show your commitment to safe boating: Tie the Knot!

The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary may not be known for catchy  advertising headlines, but they sure know knots.

Boaters depend on knots and lines to secure all manner of things and it may come as no surprise that there are many kinds of lines and knots.

So, come learn from the experts with some of the techniques used on Coast Guard patrols.

The course is free for all participants, so why “knot” give it a try? Advance registration is required; to attend, contact Drew Wilkins at the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary.

During this one-hour seminar, you will learn:

  • Different line characteristics and what they are good for
  • What is a rope
  • Knots for docking and mooring
  • The difference between a knot, a hitch and a bend
  • How to tie four boating knots yourself
