No experience necessary!


Whether you love boating and want to gain confidence at the helm, you're considering buying or renting a boat and want to learn new skills, or you're just curious about boating, the BoatUS On Water Training program at Freedom Boat Club Charleston is a fun, easy, and affordable way to develop your sea legs!

Freedom Boat Club, the world's oldest and largest boat club with 15,000+ members in 22 states and Canada, is pleased to work with BoatUS Foundation in an exciting training capacity. During each three-hour course, you will gain hands-on experience in the following skills at the helm of a 21-foot powerboat.

There is nothing more important to us than the safety of our participants. Sometimes weather can be a limiting factor on the water. If the weather forecast is questionable, we will contact you about rescheduling to our alternate date (August 12-13, 2017) no later than the morning of Friday, July 28.
