Survey seeks input on human-propelled boat standards

Posted on

A team of experts assembled with Coast Guard grant funding seeks national content validation of a set of entry level, skill-based manually propelled boat operation standards (canoes, kayaks, rowboats, paddleboards, etc.).

The National On-Water Standards Team is seeking input from recreational paddling and rowing educators on a first-round set of standards to be used to assess the performance of human-propelled boating skills at the entry level.

US Sailing was awarded grant funding to facilitate a consensus-based process to develop entry-level, skill-based performance standards for recreational boat operation. A grant facilitator is designing and managing the development of sail, power and human propelled standards that will eventually be recognized by the Coast Guard for incorporation in training programs nationwide.

    I am glad to hear that the USCG is so over-funded that it can waste resources on something as stupid as this.

    Does anyone associated with this able to document that they have a brain? Or is it that they are petit tyrants?
