Sept. 4 will help develop a consensus- based National On-Water Standards for entry-level recreational boat oper- ation that will incorporate a combina- tion of on-water experienced-based instruction and classroom knowl- edge/theory-based teaching. “We are trying to increase the level of safety and enjoyment that recre- ational sailboat operators experience on the water,” said K. Brian Dorval, On-Water grant facilitator. “If we can provide more on water training in the sailboat itself, which can increase the quality level of sailboat operators.” A total of 53 sailboat operation

in the survey. Responses from the 2014 survey that centered on sail boat operation will be used for field testing the Sail Standards during the winter, spring and summer of 2016. Operating under grants provided to


U.S. Sailing by the Coast Guard, the study aims to develop and refine on- water entry level standards as part of the National System of Standards. Powerboating, sailing and human- powered vessel operations are includ- ed in the study. Responses will be analyzed by subject matter experts to update and to develop a list of stan- dards for the field-testing program. When completed, the five-year study will provide one national sys- tem of standards for classroom and on-water training instruction. The system of standards will be


recognized by the Coast Guard as components that will be incorporated in recreational boating education pro- grams that will be available to anyone who would like to design and deliver a program that is consistent with “the highest quality standards for develop- ing skilled, knowledgeable and safe boaters.” This is your opportunity to impact the development of free recreational paddling and rowing (canoes, kayaks, rowboats, paddleboards, etc.) stan- dards/rubrics that can be voluntarily used by educators when developing boating courses.
