Unique Women On Water class set for July 8 at Marine Max

The Unique Women On Water (W.O.W.) class will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 8 at Marine Max of Catawba Island. Across the United States, millions of women every year head for the water to spend a day onboard. Although they enjoy life on the water, many women leave the piloting of boats to men not because they can't navigate, but often because they don't know how. MarineMax, the nation's largest boating and yachting retailer, is seeking to help women take safely to the sea with their innovative new Women on Water (W.O.W.) course. The class is now free and open to the public. A W.O.W. class is more than just a class it's a hands-on educational experience for women only. The small-group seminar is taught by a Coast Guard-certified captain. In a classroom setting and then behind the wheel of a MarineMax boat or yacht, women learn basic marine rules and how to dock a boat, tie marine knots, use a marine radio and more. By the end of the day, class participants will have the knowledge and confidence necessary to pilot a boat and have a great time doing so.
