The Massachusetts sponsored BOAT MASSACHUSETTS Program is held typically once a year (Late Spring) at the

Tewksbury Rod & Gun Club. BOAT MASSACHUSETTS is state and nationally approved, concentrating on the

equipment and operating guidelines needed to enjoy boating in a safe and responsible way. Successful graduates in the

12 through 15 year-old age group will be issued a Safety Certificate allowing them to operate a motorboat without

adult supervision, as required by state law. The same is true for 16 and 17 year old youth who wish to operate

a personal watercraft (jetski, wave runner, etc.)

All classes are free of charge. Classes are open to adults and youth.
