Women Making Waves, an education program by Paris Marine for women to help them become boaters, was held at McCrackens Landing on Saturday, June 17, 2017.
Peterborough Squadron Commander Gina Lee taught Mandatory Safety Equipment and Rules of the Road and Paris Marine staff taught how to trailer and get the boat in/out of the water, and then took participants out in a boat to teach them how to handle a power boat. This is a great program, and Paris Marine also now offers "Children Making Waves."
