82 or 62? Your Choice on Swim Test for New Members

82 or 62? Your Choice – Optional indoor Basic Sailing swim test and Water Safety class for May sailing classes

This swim test/basic water safety class will include requirements for the MSC Basic Rating* (newly aligned with the US Sailing Small Boat rating) plus basic water safety techniques, all conducted in an 82-degree pool rather than the 60 degree lake.

Participants will show they can swim 50 yards, tread water for 2 minutes, and put on a life jacket in the water.

In addition, participants will learn basic rescue techniques with some of our safety equipment (throw ropes, ring toss, & newly acquired lifeguard tubes.)

There is a charge of $10/person to use the facility. Guests may stay after the test/class and swim more or use the gym and workout facilities. $10 covers use of the Center all day.

Participants should RSVP to Meg Gower so I know how many lanes to reserve.

Time: May 6th at 9:45am

Location: 2810 Baker Rd, Dexter, MI

Meet in front lobby.

Complimentary towels, showers, shampoo, conditioner, etc. all included.

* Students will still do the Capsize portion of their class in the lake, but they will be wearing life jackets of course, plus their sailing gear which adds insulation.
