Suddenly In Command

Suddenly in Command is a Boating Safety presentation designed for those who are not hormally at the helm and may find themselves "Suddenly in Command" if the skipper becomes ill, gets injured or falls overboard. Overview of the basics you should know to be prepared for an emergency, how to minimize mishaps, and how to call for help, will be presented. With so many new boaters hitting our waterways, this topic is likely more important than ever.
