Texas Boating Safety Course (TBSC)

 

This FREE Online Course is approved by the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department (TPWD) to satisfy certain mandatory State boating education requirements. Sail Away members must complete this course and submit a certificate of successful completion to be eligible for full participation in the Sail Away Program.

 

 

TPWD Fine Schedule

 

TPWD requires that all boaters on public lakes (including White Rock Lake) assume the responsibility to know and adhere to State Water Safety Regulations. The above link will help familiarize you with those requirements. Compliance with TPWD regulations may even save your life or the life of someone else on the water.

 

NOAA Chart One - 11th edition - A Guide to U.S. Paper Nav Charts and RNCs

 

Raster Navigational Charts (RNCs)are exact photographic copies of NOAA's latest updated Navigational Charts. RNCs for the entire United States (offshore and inland) can be downloaded at no cost from: NOAA's website

 

NOAA Chart One - 12th edition - A Guide to U.S. Paper Nav Charts, RNCs, and ENCs

 

This is an extremely large pdf file of the 12th Edition, and it takes several minutes to load. It is more than seven times as large as the 11th Edition Chart (See previous link). the 11th Edition does not include the new symbols on NOAA's vector Electronic Navigational Charts (ENCs). If you do not use NOAA Vector Charts, I see no reason to download this huge file.

Start Sailing Right is a 112-page paperback sailing manual published by the United States Sailing Association. I paid about six dollars for the 1997 version. Mark Smith and Derrick Fries are the principal contributors. The book weighs only 14 ounces.

 

Sleight – New Complete Sailing Manual – Hardbound – usually available for $20-25 on Amazon. I regard this book to be the best bargain available as a comprehensive sailing reference book. The 2005 edition weighs 3.1 pounds, which I regard to be “portable”. I have several new and used copies that you can buy for $10 to $12.

 

Chapman – Piloting and Seamanship – 66th Edition – typically $35-$40 on Amazon. This is generally acknowledged to be the U. S. Boating Bible, and is the basis for Coast Guard Pilot Certification programs. Warning: The book weighs 7.5 pounds. That fact alone discourages you from ever having the book readily available for reference, but if it isn’t in Chapman, you probably don’t need to know.
