Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum - Learn Boating Essentials

January 7, 2018

2:00pm - 4:00pm


Class participation is limited, with advanced
registration needed.
Led by Captain Jerry Friedman, a USCG-licensed Master, class participants will gain knowledge
and confidence in reading charts, understanding navigational aids, plotting courses, proper
anchoring, knot tying, knowing what to do in emergencies, and other helpful information for
anyone who spends time aboard a boat.
A retired electrical engineering executive, Friedman has held a USCG captain’s license for 60
years. During that time, he also operated an emergency service towboat for BoatUS, assisting
boaters along the Chesapeake Bay in distress, delivering boats around the Chesapeake and from
Florida and Long Island to Annapolis, teaching navigation courses, editing a monthly
professional captains' publication, and providing instruction to boat owners in the operation of
their boats. He currently holds a 100-ton Master’s license and serves as the volunteer lead
captain of CBMM’s 1920 buyboat Winnie Estelle
